Dhoni-Sehwag Rift Settled: Ganguly

India's Sehwag and captain Dhoni share a laugh as they walk off field after their team's victory.
Talking to reporters at a programme, Ganguly informed that he recently had a talk with Sehwag who told him that everything has been settled between him and Dhoni.

Former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly says current skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virender Sehwag have settled their differences.

Talking to reporters at an event in Kolkata Wednesday, Ganguly said that he recently had a talk with Sehwag who told him that everything had been settled between him and Dhoni, PTI reported.

Reports of rift between Dhoni and Sehwag surfaced last month after the team management introduced rotation policy for only three openers - Sachin Tendulkar, Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir - during the tri-series in Australia.

To a question on the perception that Dhoni did not give a chance to many players and preferred to play with a fixed team, Ganguly said: Every captain is different and no captain is perfect. Maybe, Dhoni believes that this team can win because no captain wants to lose.

Asked whether he would play Manoj Tiwari and Ashok Dinda if he were the captain of India, he said, I probably would have given a chance to them but I hope Dhoni will also give a chance to these players.
