Bangalore: Describing the ball tampering controversy involving the Pakistan team as sad and disappointing, Indian captain Rahul Dravid on Thursday said it was now important that the issue reached a “right conclusion”.
“It was a sad and disappointing event,” Dravid said in reply to a question as the nine-day rolling camp here ahead of the Malaysia tri-series concluded on Thursday.
“Nobody wants to see a match being forfeited,” he said. However, Dravid said it was time to move on from the controversy. “I think we have got to move on from there. What’s happened, has happened, we can’t change it and the series has gone on.
“England are playing Pakistan in a good one-day series, and the game of cricket goes on. I don’t think it (ball tampering episode) is going to be a major blow to the game or make an impact.
“I think there needs to be some kind of conclusion, and i am sure towards the end of the month, they will find that.”
