    I'm in the let bowlers bowl camp. I don't agree that the scientists can yet work out when someone will get injured ahead of time. I'd also be super interested to compare the workload of Jackson bird to start anyway. I'd reckon he's bowled a comparable number of overs in the last say 3 months or whatever

    First Class overs this summer:

    Siddle - 272.2 (7 games)
    Johnson - 190.4 (6 games)
    Bird - 173.5 (6 games)
    Starc - 137.4 (4 games)

    Yep, Starc definetley needs a rest more than Siddle

    as far as I can tell, they're not trying to prevent hamstrings and side-strains. that is impossible. they're mainly trying to prevent back and foot stress injures. It seems to me scientists are perfectly capable of saying "hey you've been bowling a lot lately. history says, and considering your age, you're approaching a stage when you're a chance of getting a stress injury. you can play, but we've warned you". and then ca is saying "well **** we don't want another bowler out for 6 months. we've got two ashes series in the next 12 months"

    eg a whole lotta common sense is being used.

    How many of those 137 overs has Starc bowled over his last two matches?


    And how old is Starc compared to Siddle.

    They called Patto's foot injury before the Sydney test last year. Team ignored it and bam, he's out for a month. Guess that's what they're trying to avoid here.

    Nah **** that. If they are doing that they need to be taking into account force and loads on parts of the body ie nm through the foot on the popping crease. and measuring the strength of the body maybe by bone density or something. And there'd be different limits for each bowler. They decided they didn't want to break the two left armers rule and yeah they decided they didn't want another injury. But they went with the dartboard made of cotton wool method imo.
