There are frequent questions about the rotation policy of the England cricket team. England rely on its key players under the rotation policy. Earlier this year, they adopted it on their India tour. India defeated England 3-1 in their home Test series. Following this, the WTC lost 1-0 in a Test series with New Zealand before the final. Taking a lesson from his past mistakes, England’s Test captain Joe Root has suggested he go with his key players in the Test series against India and the Ashes. Former England cricketer Ian Botham has been critical of the rotation policy and has bragged to the think tank for implementing it.
“I’m not sure we’re selecting the right players,” Ian Botham wrote in the Daily Mail. Rotation, I mean big mistake. This is complete garbage. When you play cricket, after some good performances in Test matches, I don’t want you to hear someone say relax. Joe Root has recently revealed that we are entering a time when we need to rest and relax. In the following days, if someone is fit, we go with our best team. It’s really exciting and I’m looking forward to it.
