Langdon: Stop the rotations
Karl Langdon has delivered a scathing attack on the Australian cricket selectors after it was announced Rod Marsh would stand down from the post.
Australia completed their One Day International series against South Africa and were swept for the first time in a two-team series.
The Australian team was without Mitchell Starc (knee/rested), Josh Hazlewood (rested) and Nathan Coulter-Nile (shoulder) and had little-known Joe Mennie, Chris Tremain and Dan Worrall.
Langdon said you hardly even know who is playing for the Australian ODI team these days given the rotations and Cricket Australia needed to lighten the schedule.
‘Whoever takes Rod Marsh’s place what they need to do is get back to picking those who are performing,’ Langdon said.
‘Forget rotating blokes out of the team after they’ve bowled 75 balls and all this other crap that they’ve rolled into the program in the last few years.
‘Just let the young blokes play because one thing they will, if they don’t perform they will drop them.’
