India fast bowler Mohammed Shami has praised from Virat Kohli’s rotation policy saying he has benefited from the same.
“I fully support Kohli’s rotation policy. It gives rest to players like me to get ready not only for Tests but across all formats,” Shami was quoted as saying in a PTI report.
Shami played only one match in the series against Australia. The other experienced pacer. Umesh Yadav too has backed Kohli's rotation policy.
“I think it’s good for the fast bowlers. If you continuously play Test cricket, it’s a lot of load for a fast bowler. Playing in sub-continental conditions is very tough. Slow wicket, no pace and bounce. It’s very hard for the fast bowlers to come to one-day cricket with the same intensity,” Umesh had earlier said.
“When you have played a long season, recovery is very crucial. You can play a lot of matches but your fitness can take a hit. There are more chances of injuries and breakdowns. I think the management is doing a good job in balancing our workload,” he added.
