Dravid rubbishes reports of Sehwag-Dhoni rift



Senior Indian batsman Rahul Dravid rubbished Australian media reports that successive losses in the ongoing Test series has led to disharmony in the visiting side's dressing room, saying the team is not bothered about such speculation.

Dravid said reports that opener Virender Sehwag is at loggerheads with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and that some players in the team are backing the former to take over captaincy are untrue.

"When you do badly, suddenly everything is seen as wrong with the team. There is no truth (in Sehwag vs Dhoni reports) to those matters. As I said, the spirit of the team is really good," Dravid said in Perth on Wednesday.

'Not bothered about Haddin's comments'

There's been criticism all around with the go-karting session of Indians drawing extreme response from Indian media and Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has added his bit by stating that the Indians are mentally the most fragile team in international circuit.

"One of the good things about travelling abroad is you are in a bit of a cocoon. You don't gauge what's happening back home. There's a sense of disappoint with the results so far, we would certainly like to do better but the spirit of the team is very good," he said.

"We haven't bothered (with Haddin comments) really. There are five days of important cricket to worry about and there is no time about anything else to be honest.

"You don't need anyone's comment to motivate yourself. We are not even bothered" he added.
