New Delhi:

The West Indies Cricket Board has committed a blunder by not letting Chris Gayle play in the series against India as the explosive batsman stands to lose nothing from a move which will only weaken the host team, feels former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram.

Gayle has been ignored so far for his outburst against the West Indies Cricket Board in a radio-show in April in which he criticised WICB for leaving him in a lurch during injury problems.

The Board wants Gayle to apologise to win his place back but the cricketer has refused to do so. Even a meeting between the two parties has failed to resolve the dispute.

"Only performances should not matter but discipline is also very important.
