Who's getting rested? Who's coming in because there are four or five guys waiting to take my spot?.<br /> <br /> "On the one hand I think it's great that everybody's getting an opportunity. But also, if I'm a paying member of the public, I want to see Australia's number one side. What is that side? I don't know, no one knows."<br /> <br /> Lee said relying on sports science as the basis for a rotation policy was flawed.<br /> <br /> "It's all speculation, there is no proven stats as to a certain amount of balls you can bowl," he said.<br /> <br /> "People are getting rested on what if someone gets injured. I just don't reckon you can do that, you can't have a what if sort of policy."<br /> <br /> Australia will again rest Test men Michael Clarke, David Warner and Matthew Wade from Sunday's game in Adelaide.
