Key England players may be rested, says coach FlowerMay 19th, 2010 - 6:51 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 19 (ANI): England cricket team coach Andy Flower has said that some key players may be rested in parts in preparation for this year’s hectic international schedule.
The team’s workload shows no signs of being reduced over the next year with England due to play Bangladesh, Pakistan and Australia in a series of ODIs, Tests and Twenty20 matches.
“We have a very busy 12 months ahead of us and we are going to have to rest players at various times,” The Mirror quoted Flower, as saying at a press conference yesterday.
“In certain situations, it is possible that we will have to rest some players either for emotional reasons such as stress and sometimes it will be for strength and conditioning reasons. With our schedule it will be hard to fit enough strength and conditioning in,” he added. (ANI)
