Batsman Ross Taylor believes that the New Zealand management will protect the players from the risk of burnout.

Taylor's views Thursday comes just after country's former skipper Martin Crowe had written in a column that "fatigue" could dent their chances at the World Cup, as they would be playing almost non-stop cricket prior to the quadrennial tournament.

"It's busy, but every other nation is pretty busy as well, the way Hess (coach Mike Hesson) and Brendon (captain McCullum) are wanting to rest players at different times (is good)," Taylor was quoted as saying by the New Zealand Herald.

"Bowlers will be rotated and, as long as you're winning games, it doesn't matter if you're playing or not."

Taylor also said the team will just try to get the basics right at the World Cup.
