Aussies scrap rotation policy for NZ ODI visit; Lehmann to play Starc, Hazlewood

Melbourne [Australia], Nov. 28 : It seems that Australia have learnt from the humiliation dished out to them by playing the gamble of sending second string ODI attack against South Africa last month as they have decided to scrap its resting strategy for the upcoming one-day series against New Zealand.

Head coach Darren Lehmann has made it clear that Australia would be playing Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood when they would play against the Black Caps to regain the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy.

Earlier this year, Australia lost the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy to the Black Caps and have, therefore, picked a full-strength squad in a bid to regain the trophy.
