“This message is for the people of India, and for Indian cricket fans worldwide - and comes from the whole team. As we prepare for the T20 World Cup, we are a superbly unified team,” Dhoni read out from a hand written note.
“The team spirit is as good as it has been. There is no rift in the team. Media reports of rift between me and Virender Sehwag are completely false, baseless and irresponsible. Our fans and supporters can take confidence from the wonderful unity that continues to exist in this team,” he added.
A media report said Friday that both the players had a ugly face-off over Sehwag’s fitness. Sehwag is likely to miss Saturday opener due to a shoulder injury.
