Kolkata: Injury-prone India pacer Mohammed Shami on Friday said he has benefitted from Virat Kohli's rotation policy.
"I fully support Kohli's rotation policy. It gives rest to players like me to get ready not only for Tests but across all formats," Shami said in Kolkata.
The Bengal pacer was part of India's five-match ODI series against Australia and featured in the Bengaluru ODI where he returned wicketless.
The Kohli-led team went with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah as the frontline pacers, with Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal backing up as the spinners.
The side have persisted with the two-pacer, two-spinner combination in the ongoing series against New Zealand as well, with Kuldeep only getting replaced by Axar Patel in the second ODI against the Black Caps.
Shami however, was in his prime in the domestic arena as he bagged a match haul of eight wickets in their innings win over Chhattisgarh in Raipur in the Ranji Trophy.
