Since sometime there had been whiff in the air that the seniors were dissatisfied with the reason for implementing the rotation policy adhered by the Captain M S Dhoni. The captain today in Sydney in a press conference struck aside the rumor and said it was media hype, as usual. He ascertained that there was neither dissent nor a communication gap in Team India. He also said there was really no need to sort out differences as there really did not exist any differences. It may be noted that there were reports across the media that he had quoted that the rotation policy of seniors like Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar was adhered to. The reasons as claimed in the media was that the seniors were bad fielders and cost the team some extra runs, which played against the team resulting in losing the game.
The above comment came under sharp criticism from Gambhir and Sehwag, but Sachin was silent as usual. The Captain on his part denied his comment on the particular issue and held the media responsible for misinterpreting the issue. The Captain felt such reports are a bit embarrassing but also added, `It doesn't even by 10 per cent affect our performance or has any effect in the dressing room.’ Dhoni also felt that the rotation policy as of now is controlled by injuries and not by any one in the squad, jokingly.
