Dhaka, May 9 - Declining to comment on the sting operation of Indian cricket's 'dark side' by an Indian news channel, India captain Rahul Dravid Wednesday said he had received 'much support' from the selectors.
'I am not going to react to this sting operation and all this stuff,' Dravid told reporters on the eve of the first One-day International against Bangladesh at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur here.
'To be honest, I had received as much support as I needed and I was very happy with the team that I had in the -. Beyond that I don't know much about this. I haven't seen or listened anything and I can't comment on everything somebody saying,' said Dravid, who led the team that crashed out in the first round of the World Cup.
Indian cricket was plunged into fresh controversy after a TV sting caught national selectors blaming ex-coach Greg Chappell and senior players for a disastrous World Cup campaign.
Headlines Today showed selectors accusing the Australian of running a divide-and-rule policy.
The four national selectors - Ranjib Biswal, Bhupinder Singh Senior, Venkatapathy Raju and Sanjay Jagdale - were caught on the camera blaming Chappell and his star cricketers for the humiliation at the World Cup.
