Australia skipper Ricky Ponting on Thursday questioned the current rotation policy followed by the board, saying it’s far from perfect.
Ponting was rested in the first two one-dayer against New Zealand but was hurriedly recalled after Australia lost both.
Pointing out that the same Australian squad subsequently won back-to-back matches to level the series, Ponting said, “We haven’t made any changes in the last couple of games and probably played our best cricket as a result of that. “The resting policy is something that we need to keep working on and trying to find ways to make the overall policy a little bit better and a little bit tighter,” he added. The skipper however, acknowledged the need to rest players to avoid burn-out.
