Melbourne: Feb 4, 2013

In the part two of his blog titled ‘ Where is Australian Cricket at?’, spin legend Shane Warne has criticised Cricket Australia’s rotation policy as the reason for the team’s decline in rankings.

“When we were number 1 there weren’t mission statements flying around, but we got the selection process right and the best 11 were selected for every game,” he wrote.

Glenn McGrath didn’t want to be rotated or rested, he wanted to play every game, and we all did,” he added.

Talking about team selection, he put it rather simply. “It’s simple, select your best 11 for each form of the game, not the same 11 but your best available team at all times,” he wrote.

On the rules that are implemented in One-Day Internationals, Warne wrote, “We have changed the rules/laws too many times in this form [one-day] of the game, everyone is confused.”

“It is time to deregulate one-day cricket. No restrictions with the field, none, place the fielders anywhere you want, this will create so many options and the attacking captains and teams will win. The only law should be that no bowler can bowl more than 10 overs.”

This was Shane Warne’s second blog after making comments about the way Cricket Australia functions and has promised to talk about a lot of other issues that prevail in Australian Cricket through more such blogs.
