Is rotation policy good for Team India?
A successful rotation policy can be the difference between winning one World Cup and remaining World Champions for an entire decade like Australia were between 1999 and 2011. Rotation policies ensure depth along with bench strength and should not be mistaken for politics. Players need a break from the game to recuperate and it is something we should not deny them as human beings.
62.96 % Defend
37.04 % Attack
“ Rotation is essential if a team wants depth and strength on the bench as well. ”
“ Winning is more important than trials of the players. ”
Monish Moorthy: The long term plans of the team include the 2015 World Cup. Rotation is the way for them to build a pool of 20 players who by then will have the polished skill and experience required for a title defense. Seniors with years of experience have bigger troubles if one match on the bench can harm their 'form'. Youngsters though need to given a good run for them to make mistakes and learn from them, understand themselves and the game better.
Foram Gosrani: While it ensures that young players get a chance in the playing 11, it also means the in form player misses a match per policy rules, affecting their rhythm. E.G.: Gautam Gambhir has scored very well but will miss every 3rd match while Rohit Sharma is still in the playing 11 despite his non-performance. Young players get a chance but there is no guarantee they will perform well and could turn into a liability for the team. Winning is more important than trials of the players.

Instead of experimenting with new players, India should play its well set players in the series ahead of the World Cup.
