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 we have probably played our best cricket as a result of that.
“It (the resting policy) is something that we need to keep working on and looking at and trying to find ways to make the overall policy a little bit better and a little bit tighter,” he added.
Ponting,however,acknowledged the need to rest players to avoid burn-out but felt it was not an easy choice.
“It’s hard to say what is right and what is wrong. I think it’s important we have got guys that are at their freshest mentally and physically when we really need them. It’s a hard one to get right.
“I have some say in it,like I have some say in selections as well. At the end of the day a lot of those bigger decisions are made without me,that’s just the way it is at the moment,” Ponting was quoted as saying in the ‘Daily Telegraph’ said.
