Former Australian pacer Brett Lee has stated that fast bowlers should play each and every game unless they are struggling with fitness or injury issues.
Lee also said he does not like the idea of fast bowlers getting rested and taking constant breaks as part of workload management.
“I’m against the whole resting rule. I don’t like bowlers resting, I like bowlers to play each and every single game,” Lee told PTI
“If they are struggling with an injury then it’s fair enough. But what I want to see is pace bowlers, doing all the hard work and playing day in and day out,” he added.
Speaking about India’s shocking Test defeat in South Africa, Lee felt it must have been an aberration as it was the same side who beat Australia in Australia and then took the upper hand against England to lead 2-1.
“Look, it happens sometimes. They have been playing some pretty good cricket. The way they played in Australia, beating them on home soil, and then in England…
“Australia are currently right up there, the number one side in the world. But India have been a very good Test side. It was one of those things that South Africa played a really amazing series on their home soil,” he said.
