New Delhi: Former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar on Friday, told NDTV that a lot of negativity can be expected from the upcoming India-England series, starting November 15.

Criticising Michael Vaughan's tweet earlier which blasted 'India's tactics to not play a regular spinner in the practice match,' Gavaskar said that former England players should not make such statements. "Are former England players going to tell us what team to play? Are they going to pick our side for us. I mean these sort of comments should just be ignored," he said.

"It is entirely India's prerogative. May be the selectors wanted to try these players. Indian selectors will do what is good for the Indian team."
