Should players be given freedom to choose between club and country?

Gautam Gambhir and Yuvraj Singh have backed out of the West Indies tour citing injuries they apparently picked during IPL’s season 4. This has fueled the issue of club v/s country debate which has led to opposing views being expressed by former players like Kapil Dev and Sunil Gavaskar.

Kapil Dev is of the opinion that times have changed so players should be given the freedom to choose whatever they want to do. While Gavaskar says that players choosing IPL over country should not be allowed to be picked up for national duty.

We at would like to ask your opinion on whether players choosing club over country should be barred from national duty or the time has come when players should be given independence to decide what they think is best for them.
