Inclusion of Dravid, a mistake: Azhar

Bhopal: Former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin has openly criticised selector's decision to bring Rahul Dravid back and suggested that a youngster should have been preferred instead.

"Selectors should have opted for a young player instead of ageing Dravid," Azharuddin told reporters during an Iftaar party here.

"The decision of the Selection Committee on the issue is wrong," he said.

Azhar who played for 99 Test matches and 334 ODI's threw his weight behind champion batsman Sachin Tendulkar and said there was no question of his retirement as he was playing well.

He said that both VVS Laxman and Yuvraj Singh impressed him a lot.

Azharuddin said the game would benefit if more players are involved in running sport associations.

However, he said that the BCCI was an exception in this regard as it was committed towards the promotion of cricket in a professional manner.
