‘Oz rotation policy imperfect’

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.
