'England's rotation policy justified'

Siddhartha Talya

Vic Marks, writing in the Guardian, says it is with good reason that England should continue their rotation policy given the 'ludicrous' scheduling over the cricketing summer.

Having embraced rotation, England should stick with it, whoever the opposition. It is the England management's most eloquent way of informing their bosses of the ludicrous schedules that are devised for their international cricketers. Understandably, Andy Flower and Andrew Strauss are reluctant to be too candid about those schedules since they might upset their employers. In public, Flower merely says they are "tough", which sounds to me like a euphemism.
