    And saying that these blokes are getting rested for more limited overs stuff is ridiculous. How many test matches can you play with a stress fracture? It's just the nature of it that test matches are played near other test matches. If they played one test match, then had four limited overs matches in between, then play another test match... and they don't play the test matches but the limited overs matches then you'd have a point.

But they went with the dartboard made of cotton wool method imo.
    Wow I can't believe sports scientists haven't thought of that!

    And how old is Starc compared to Siddle.
    Don't compare starc and siddle it's irrelevant. Starc and bird. And the timing of those overs wouldn't be much different would it?

    well they probably are to some extent. i doubt they'd be that much difference between when patto enters the danger zone and when starc enters it, tho

    nothing to suggest this tbh. didn't stop them in perth, mj got dropped for hobart 'cause of the new ball

    So you think someone who bowls 100 overs over the course of a year and someone who bowls 100 overs in the course of 3 days are just as likely to get injured?? Srsly?

    Your only argument here is that 'I don't trust science'.

    Although with the New Years test not long after resting him for the middle one is the sensible thing and what ought to have happened to patto. Just don't get the impression these clowns know what they are on about

    hey NUFAN, what are the sportsbet odds on watson opening the bowling. with siddle and mj in the team it's a strong chance

    If the test was a dead rubber I wouldn't have a problem with rotation, but it isn't and it makes the test a little bit of a farce.

    I misread your post.. and yeah ofcourse they would be different. When was Bird's last FC game? Starc bowled a hundred in a week. Bird def didn't. He's bowled in Tasmania so has had plenty of rest.

    I think the rest time for starc is enough. Short turnaround time has to be the reason and I'd have to agree with them knowing only what we know which is nothing

    this is really obvious...but think some of of you are kinda forgetting there's no time machine here. if you play starc after you've been told there's some serious risk in doing so, and he gets injured, you can't un-do it.
