Adelaide: None of the senior players is retiring as of now, the India team has said. There have been reports during the series that VVS Laxman (during Perth) and Rahul Dravid (during Adelaide) might have played their last Test match. After India's 0-4 whitewash, though, the team spokesperson read out a statement saying the reports were rumour and incorrect.
"The team takes note of the stories in the media suggesting the imminent retirement of a member of the Indian team," the spokesperson said. "We would like to clarify the situation by stating categorically that these are not correct and are baseless." The statement didn't name any of the players. "No players from the Indian team will be retiring. It is a rumour. Baseless. Incorrect."
Virender Sehwag, the stand-in captain, said, "I clarify that there is no need for retirement from anybody in this team. And they will take their call when they need it and when they think that their time is up."
