Is it unfair to drop players from the National squad without giving them a game?
It is unfair to drop players from the National squad without giving them a game. Bench strength cannot be assessed unless it is tested. Players are kept from appearing for their domestic teams in that time, without playing experience, their time is wasted. They should be retained in the team until they get a chance to prove their credentials on the big stage.

“ Being named for the Test squad is of no use unless there is a policy which ensures that every one plays atleast one game ”
“ Players who have been dropped without a game should not take it personally and instead focus in a team's balance. ”
Monish Moorthy: Aravind was dropped for the WI ODIs without playing a single game against England. What wrong did he do to find himself out of the squad? Similarly is the case of Ajinkya Rahane, a member of the Test squad against the Windies: he chose to play for his state team in Ranji knowing that he wouldn't get an immediate chance in the playing 11.
Foram Gosrani: It's not unfair if the Team has found the perfect balance. 15 member squads are chosen to give the Captain options for different pitches, conditions. If the players who got a game ahead of Aravind, who do the exact same job as Aravind have done a good enough job then the captain should go ahead with those players. He cannot drop them because they have proven themselves.
