Instead of knee-jerking gibberish about informed player management - and aren't all the jokes hilarious; attention fatheads, making the same dumb-cracks over and over will not eventually make them funny - the anti-rotationists ought to wonder whether there is a country that does not rest or rotate its players?
In India, the Englands have rested the Sledge Crazed Paceman, Swann and Joosty:
Just as Australia did against Sri Lanka, England has rested some of its best players from the one-day series in India, with Jimmy Anderson, Graeme Swann and Jonathan Trott absent from the series loss. But its Test team is comparatively settled.
And in South Africa the home team is on the verge of getting All-Whitewashed by New Zealand, but still lack their best XI:
(probable) 1 Graeme Smith, 2 Quinton de Kock (wk), 3 Colin Ingram, 4 Faf du Plessis (capt), 5 Farhaan Behardien, 6 David Miller, 7 Ryan McLaren, 8 Aaron Phangiso, 9 Rory Kleinveldt/Dale Steyn, 10 Morne Morkel, 11 Lonwabo Tsotsobe.
