Senior paceman Brett Lee yesterday questioned Australia's contentious rotation selection policy after injury struck down fast bowler Mitchell Starc ahead of the second one-day international against Sri Lanka. Starc's future in the five-match series is uncertain after he suffered calf soreness in Australia's 107-run thumping of the tourists in the ODI opener in Melbourne on Friday. South Australia's inexperienced 21-year-old paceman Kane Richardson has been placed on standby in the squad but is expected to be 12th man for today's one-dayer in Adelaide, with Ben Cutting likely to make his debut. With Starc out, Lee criticised the rotation policy, branding it confusing. "I believe, and I'm a bit old school, that you've got to earn your right to play for Australia," he said yesterday. "You don't want to breed a culture where you're looking over your shoulder every time - who's out this week? Who's getting rested? Who's coming in because there are four or five guys waiting to take my spot? "On the one hand, I think it's great that everybody's getting an opportunity. "But also, if I'm a paying member of the public, I want to see Australia's number one side. What is that side? I don't know, no one knows." Lee said relying on sports science as the basis for a rotation policy was flawed. "It's all speculation, there is no proven stats as to a certain amount of balls you can bowl. "People are getting rested on: What if someone gets injured?" Australia will again rest test men Michael Clarke, David Warner and Matthew Wade from today's game in Adelaide.
