New Delhi: Sourav Ganguly on Monday disclosed that Rahul Dravid was aware of what Greg Chappell was up to during his stint as India coach but he "could not control" the Australian. ('2007 World Cup Debacle not Chappell's Fault')
Ganguly's comments came after excerpts from Sachin Tendulkar's autobiography revealed that Chappell had made a "shocking" suggestion to Tendulkar to take over India's captaincy from Dravid months before the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies.
"I really don't want to go back to that period, you have seen it in the results. (It was) one of worst phases of Indian cricket and worst phase a cricketer can go through, especially someone like me. There were lies after lies and six months later he wanted Rahul removed and Sachin as captain. This goes on to show how the man went about his job," said Ganguly.
