Considering the amount of cricket Pakistan plays, Waqar Younis, their bowling coach, has said that they are working on a rotation policy to manage the workload of the pace bowlers.
Waqar admitted that Pakistan has a lot of International commitments from 2021-23 thus a rotation policy is a must to keep the bowers fresh and fit for the matches.
Our medical panel, our trainers and myself we now keep close eye on the workload and fitness of all the pace bowlers. Very soon with the Pakistan Super League and a lot of international cricket to follow after the competition, we will decide when to rest which player (s),” he said.
Waqar also said that Pakistan have a good bunch of pace bowlers that’ll help them to rotate their players without compromising on the quality of the attack.
“We are particularly keeping a close on Shaheen Shah Afridi and he may be rested for some matches of the T20 series against South Africa as he is playing non-stop in all formats,” he added.
He also added that a group of fast bowlers from the domestic cricket will be sent for training in the high-performance centre in Lahore to enhance their skills and make them ready for the national team.
