Mills okay with rotation

6:17 am on 28 February 2012

The New Zealand pace bowler Kyle Mills says all the players are accepting that rotation is a part of the game and some of them may miss out in tomorrow's second ODI against South Africa in Napier.

The momentum has shifted to the tourists after they clinched the Twenty20 series and then cruised to victory in the first ODI.

Standin captain Brendan McCullum says there will be changes for the Napier match, especially with bowlers needing a rest and some other players needing an opportunity to play.

Mills says he feels fine physically but accepts that rotation is a part of modern sport and their main priority is to get back to winning ways.

Meanwhile captain Ross Taylor was in the nets yesterday as he looks to return to the game from injury in time for the test series.
