Difficult to say if Dhoni had a hand in Viru`s ouster: Sourav GangulyNew Delhi: Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly on Sunday sought to clarify his statement on Virender Sehwag`s ouster from the Test squad, saying he had never categorically stated that Mahendra Singh Dhoni had a hand in his the opener`s omission.

A media report yesterday had quoted Ganguly as saying that, Dhoni had a hand in his the player`s removal from the team and it also stated that if Sachin Tendulkar and Dhoni are being "persisted" despite poor run of form, then why not with Sehwag.

Ganguly said,"It`s very difficult to say whether Dhoni has a hand in Sehwag`s exclusion but normally captains do have a say in team selection."

"That`s been the case with all captains, whether its me, Dravid, Tendulkar, Kumble, Dhoni, Azhar or captains around world cricket. They normally have an opinion and a say about team selection," he stated.

Having said that Ganguly also said that the selectors do not always agree with the demands of a captain.

"That doesn`t mean that Captains` opinion is taken all the time by the selectors. At times, they do listen and at times they don`t. So it`s very difficult to say whether Dhoni had a hand in Sehwag`s exclusion."
