Former India captain, Sunil Gavaskar on Wednesday said the selectors should not be afraid of dropping non-performing players but refused to criticise the selection of the side for the Asia Cup.

Asked if the players should be dropped, if their performance is not up to expectations, Gavaskar said, “Of course.”

“If you don’t do that, then it would mean that you can lose Test series 4-0, you can lose ‘x’ number of matches. It does not matter. That’s the message sent,” he said.

He however added “I guess we have to accept it. Once a team is selected, do not criticise it. It will affect their morale.”
