Kolkata: Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday denied that he had wanted then coach John Wright to apologise to Virender Sehwag for having grabbed the dashing batsman by the scruff of his collar during an ODI match in England in 2002.
"I was not even present when the incident took place. I later came to know of the incident from Harbhajan Singh in the team bus. So I was surprised by Mr. Shukla's comments," Ganguly told a news channel.
At the India Today Salaam Sachin Conclave on Tuesday, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) vice president Rajeev Shukla had narrated an incident that happened during the match at the Oval during Ganguly's tenure as captain.
