New Delhi: Former captain Sunil Gavaskar on Tuesday, slammed the proposed rotation of the top-order batsmen in the Indian team in the cricket tri-series in Australia, saying that it suggested that the players were unfit.
Opening batsman Virender Sehwag said earlier in the day that either Gautam Gambhir or Sachin Tendulkar will be rested ahead of India's match against Sri Lanka, but Gavaskar criticised the move and said that the best players should be fielded till the knock-out stage.
"The primary thing is to to field a balanced team and to win matches. This business of rotation suggests that the players are unfit. The best team should be fielded even if a player has played eight matches successively. If all the players are fit, everybody should be in the mix," he said.
