Former Australia fast bowler Brett Lee believes the national side’s current policy of rotating their pacemen could lead to problems within the group.

After playing in the second Test, Peter Siddle and Ben Hilfenhaus were rested for the third and final match against South Africa and with James Pattinson injured, Australia went with a new seam attack of Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc and John Hastings.

Because of Pattinson’s side strain he picked up in the first innings, Siddle and Hilfenhaus bowled 67 overs between them in the second, with the former picking up four wickets.
