Melbourne: Fast bowlers must embrace Cricket Australia's new rotation policy if they want to last long in Test cricket, a leading coach has suggested even though some others feel that the idea still needs to be debated.
Allister de Winter, who was narrowly beaten by Craig McDermott to be Australia's fast bowling coach, said players must be educated about the benefits of rotation policy, introduced by CA's Pat Howard.
"It's an education process for everybody to say 'yes, you can play the next Test but how long do you want your career to be? Do you want to play Test cricket for five more years or do you want to play for three? Ultimately that's what it's going to come to," said de Winter, who is now coach of Big Bash semi-finalists Hobart Hurricanes.
