New Delhi:Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram feels India is on right track in its preparations for next year's World Cup and resting five senior players to test bench strength in the ODI series against Australia was a right decision taken by the selectors.
"The decision to drop five senior players for ODI series against Australia has been a brave one. Sehwag and Gambhir are the best opening duo in the world and Sachin is like old wine, getting better every day. More than the batsmen, the decision to rest Zaheer and Harbhajan will definitely impact the bowling attack. But I am sure this is for a justified cause. Even if India lose the ODI series against Australia, there will be nothing to worry," Akram said.
