Sydney: Jan 21, 2013

Injured fast-bowler Ryan Harris is backing Australia’s rotation policy, calling it the best way forward for the management of its players.

Harris spoke to CATV about his recovery and strongly believed that managing player workloads is the need of the hour for Australia in all three formats of the game.

This comes at a time when there are growing concerns over Australia’s over indulgence in the policy with captain Michael Clarke defending the rotation policy, only to blame it for the loss in the third one-day international(ODI) to Sri Lanka, less than a day later.

But Harris was confident about the policy and explained how he was rested for a Test against West Indies in Trinidad, when he didn’t want to be. However, he accepted that he was a bit fatigued and would have struggled towards the end of the game, had he played, as reported by cricket.com.au
