Ganguly 'relieved issue is over'

Harish Kotian | September 27, 2005 21:32 IST

India captain Sourav Ganguly expressed happiness with the way things went at the Board of Control for Cricket in India's review committee meeting in Mumbai on Tuesday.

"Whatever I had to say I have said to the BCCI," he told media persons shortly before leaving for Kolkata late in the evening.

Indian Cricket's Mahayuddh

The committee, which discussed the rift between him and India coach Greg Chappell -- which became public after the former was asked to step down during the tour of Zimbabwe and then the coach's e-mail to BCCI chief Ranbir Singh Mahendra was leaked out -- came to the conclusion that the spat was because of "miscommunication".

Asked about the controversial e-mail, wherein Chappell, among other things, said he often feigned injury, Ganguly shot back: "I am relieved that the issue is finally over.

"It was a big issue; it has finally been resolved. We [Chappell and I] can work together."

On his plans for the future, he replied, "It is up to myself, the coach and players to keep trying and working hard, especially in One-Day Internationals. I am looking forward to the season ahead."
