Jaipur: Ashish Nehra on Sunday said the controversy surrounding Sourav Ganguly's place in the Pune Warriors' team had no effect on the performance of the players and added that the skipper was "rested" in the team's previous match against RCB.
"As far as I know, Ganguly took rest in the team's previous match against RCB and later I came to know that he is playing today. I don't know much about the so called controversy," said Nehra.
"I don't think that this episode had any bearing on the performance of the players. We are here to perform and no matter who the captain is we try to give our 100 per cent. I have no idea about the other matters but I know that he was rested in the previous match," he added.
