Former England captains Michael Vaughan and Kevin Pietersen criticized the regular players for being given rest during the ongoing Test series against India. England’s rotation policy has been in controversy since then, but South African fast bowler Dale Steyn differs from it.
According to him, this is giving players a chance to play in international cricket and England is gradually preparing an army of good cricketers. Interestingly, his statement has also received support from Karen Pollard and fans.
Stan tweeted, “England’s rotation policy is making good cricketers.” We are criticizing it right now but given the eight ICC tournaments to be held in the next eight years, England will not have to work hard to select players with international experience in the team.
England management, however, defended the rotation policy and they were supported by others including West Indies limited-overs captain Kieran Pollard. Pollard said, ‘It is very difficult to live in the bubble. I have heard from many people. ‘
He said- He has never been in the bubble and he does not know how to overcome it. When a player decides to come out of it, I don’t think there is any need to be sad about it.
