Non-performers should be axed: Azhar

Rajkot, Dec 12: Former India skipper Mohammad Azharuddin feels the selectors should drop non-performers from the team and backed their decision to axe Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh for the fourth and final Test against England at Nagpur, starting Dec 13, Thursday.

Azharuddin endorsed selectors' decision to axe Yuvraj and Harbahjan since they had not performed well in the ongoing Test series against England.

"The selectors' decision to keep non-performing players out of the team is proper," said Azharuddin, who has represented India in 99 Tests before a life ban from the BCCI stopped him from playing cricket in the year 2000.

Azharuddin also pointed out that the entire team is struggling in the last couple of months and selectors need to take a call on them as well.

"Not only these two but all those who are not performing should be rested," he said.

Moreover Azharuddin also hoped Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh would make a comeback soon.

"They have plenty of cricket left in them and would surely come back in the national side," Azharuddin added.
