A video of former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar speaking on Indian domestic cricket. Gavaskar feels that international players should be allowed to play in Ranji Trophy matches. He also said that he would have preferred a 12-member team instead of a 15-men squad as the Ranji Trophy is going on in full swing.



"I would actually prefer a 12-member squad. There is a Ranji match that is happening. Then I would have players playing Ranji Trophy matches. It is better to have practice than to sit in the dressing room and do nothing," he was quoted by PTI.



He also said that India pace spearhead Zaheer Khan, who is going through a lean patch, should be put through "stringent tests" to ascertain his fitness in the run up to the first of the four-match Test series against England.
