I have always wonder what is the "rules" in deciding the rotation of the players? Like, how do the coach decide which player got to be MB1 and MB2, OH1 and OH2 and so on. How do they put all of this together?
Like for instance, during VNL match of JAPAN vs SERBIA, Lisinac was MB2; when he is usually MB1 (I am referring to the rotation of serve, Lisinac is the 2nd MB to serve). What makes this change?
And how do the coach put the main attacking MB and OH (alongside the OPP) and spread them on court in between the MB2 and OH2.
What is the criteria to be the 1st and 2nd tho?
I am sorry I ave lots to ask. Hopefully y'all can chime in so everyone can have better understanding of the game. Thanks!
