Former India captain Rahul Dravid said he was never "privy to any private conversation between two individuals" about Sachin Tendulkar's revelation in his upcoming autobiography about Greg Chappell wanting to remove the Karnataka stalwart from captaincy before 2007 World Cup.

Tendulkar in his upcoming autobiography 'Playing It My Way' has written that Chappell came to his residence before the World Cup and suggested about making him the Indian captain at Dravid's expense. (Tendulkar attacks Greg Chappell, calls him a 'ringmaster')

"I haven't really read the excerpts of that book. Also I am not privy to any private conversation between two individuals. I have not heard about this before and I have no idea what happened and I would not want to make any comment," Dravid told ESPN Cricinfo.

However Dravid said that it has been seven years (since 2007) since that World Cup and it doesn't make much of a difference to him.

"It's been a long time and it does not make much of a difference to me now," said Dravid.

However, on a different note when asked if he was looking forward towards reading the book after this sensational revelation, Dravid said," Not looking forward towards reading this but yes anything that Sachin writes on batsmanship and things like what made him the best in the world. I am more interested in reading those parts," Dravid said.
