Dropping non-performers is correct decisionRajkot: Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin on Tuesday backed the selectors` decision to drop Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh from the team for the fourth and final Test against England but is hopeful that both will make a comeback in the squad.

"The selectors` decision to keep non-performing players out of the team is proper," the former skipper told reporters when asked about the axing of the off-spinner and the stylish batsman.

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

The cricketer-turned-politician, who is currently a Congress MP, was here to campaign for his party in the Gujarat Assembly election.

He, however, said Harbhajan and Yuvraj are good players and they would surely come back in Team India. "They have plenty of cricket left in them and would surely come back in the national side."

Asked about Sachin Tendulkar`s retirement, Azharuddin said "Sachin is a great player and let him and selectors decide about his future."

"The selection committee is the proper body to decide about who should play and who should retire," said the veteran of 99 Tests and 334 ODIs.
