Melbourne: Veteran pacer Brett Lee has warned Cricket Australia against the temptation to "baby" the nation's fast bowlers with a rotation system that was designed to protect them from injury, saying the selectors' job was to pick the best players to spearhead the Test attack.
"I'm here or there with the 50-over game in that guys might need a rest because there is so much of it played," Lee said.
"Twenty20 is obviously 'do what you want' because that's the game - you amp it up. However, for Test match cricket you put the best on the park every time. Guys have to be fit and strong enough to get through and play a whole Test series. It's a fact of cricketing life that along the way things do happen, players will get injured but that creates opportunity for others," Lee was quoted as saying by The Age.
