I really didnt know he practiced. I thought he just went in there to play the main event or something, after not seeing him play the practice matches. Well if that was the case then he shouldnt be there first place. You're right. But these events, both the T20 WC and the england tour, is schduled so close that do you think it really would have made a lot of difference ? thats something else to think about. may be he would have gotten like 10-15 days of rest before being back on the nets again.
But yes ideally i would definitely rest him until his injury gets healed completely.
