Steven Finn has become the latest player to back the much-debated rotation system after describing it as an investment in the future of English cricket.
Finn has benefited more than most from England's desire to rest their senior players, most notably their quicks, after he was drafted in for the final Investec Test against West Indies with the series already won at Edgbaston.
A couple of weeks on and England find themselves in the same position again in this one-day series, after convincing back-to-back wins have helped them take an unassailable 2-0 lead ahead of Friday's final game at Headingley.
Once again England's selectors have opted to rest key names for a dead rubber with Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann and local favourite Tim Bresnan given a chance to put their feet up.
Their absences will provide Finn with the opportunity to take on a more senior role on Friday, when the players will be hoping for clearer conditions after persistent rain forced them to train indoors on Thursday.
While Finn has established himself as a key part of the 50-over set up this year - he has played all six ODIs in 2012 and taken 15 wickets - the 23-year-old is relishing any chance to play a more prominent role after being forced to bide his time in his young career so far.
"I've opened the bowling for a little while in the one-day team; throughout the winter and into this season it's something that I am enjoying doing. I'm enjoying the responsibility," he said.
"Having those two other senior players missing gives me an opportunity to be an even more senior player within the group.
"It's an exciting experience - any experience I get of being a senior player is great.
"The more exposure we get at an early age the better we are going to be in the future.
"It (the rotation policy) is more of an investment in the future with the rest of those guys also able to prolong their careers and play in the more important games.
"It also gives the young guys the opportunity to come through and make the most of it.
"It's important that any logical opportunity for a rest for the senior players then I think it should be taken."
Finn has been joined by fellow young seamers Chris Woakes and Stuart Meaker in the squad for Friday's game and he believes their inclusion will not significantly undermine the class on show.
"The great thing about the squad of players that we have is that we are not significantly reducing the quality of the side by losing those guys," he said.
"We've got young players coming through who need to gain international experience at international level, me one of those included.
"Both those guys (Woakes and Meaker) are the same age as me and I've played a lot with them when I was growing up. They're both fantastic talents.
"Stuart bowls upward of 90 miles an hour and Woakesy has got all the skills - he's got the potential to turn into someone of Jimmy Anderson's stature.
"It's great to have them on board and it's great to have them around the dressing room and pushing us guys who have been playing in the early part of the series."
