Adelaide: Baffled with the rotation policy, former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram said it does not work in the sub-continent and the Indian team management should not have rested a player of Sachin Tendulkar's stature.
"Don't experiment with a Sachin Tendulkar," warned Akram.
"Rotation policy does not work in our part of the world. A player like Tendulkar cannot be rested. I mean, India did win without Tendulkar in Adelaide, but his presence always plays on the mind of the rival team. That's why he is a Tendulkar. His stature is just too big to ignore," he added.
