Mumbai: Former skipper Sourav Ganguly on Friday came out in defence of the much-debated rotation policy adopted by the India team in the ongoing tri-series in Australia, saying it would help the players to be 'mentally fresh' before the final stages of the tournament.
"It's a good thing and should happen. It has been a long tour and India lost four consecutive Test matches, which can be mentally very draining. For the guys who have been there from the 8th of December, its been almost two and half months," the 39-year-old cricketer told reporters here.
"It's good that every one is getting a chance. All players will be mentally fresh for the final stages of the tournament."
