Reports Of Senior Players Retiring Baseless: Team India

By on January 28, 2012

Team India issued a statement post their humiliating drubbing in Adelaide refuting retirement reports of Dravid and any of the other senior players.

Indian team media manager GS Walia read out the statement in the post-match press conference saying – “The team management categorically denies this. Reports about senior players retiring are baseless”. He refused to answer questions on the matter, saying that there was simply no truth in the reports.

Stand-in-captain Virender Sehwag who was also part of the post-match briefing rejected the reports. “Some reports have said that senior players will retire after this series. No such thing has happened and this is a decision that they will take. These are rumours created by the media,” said Sehwag.

On Friday, news agency PTI had reported that Dravid was likely to retire and that he was believed to have told some of his teammates that he had decided to hang his boots. The report was picked up by almost all Indian media outlets and quickly fuelled the rumours.
