Stand-in skipper Virender Sehwag on Tuesday said former captain Sourav Ganguly was a forgotten chapter for Team India.

Asked at a press conference on whether the team should move away from the controversy surrounding the former captain's removal, Sehwag said, "We have already forgotten that and the team is looking forward."

"It is past and we want to look ahead of us. We are concentrating on tomorrow’s match," Sehwag added.

On whether Sourav should be drafted back into the squad, Sehwag was diplomatic in his reply, "That is for the selectors to decide. I can't comment on that. But this a young side and making its progress in the right direction."

Taking a step further, the stand-in skipper added, "We are going in the right direction in our preparations for the World Cup 2007. The side is gelling well and we hope to find the right combination."

Ganguly's last appearance on this ground was on April 9 against Pakistanin 2005when he was fined 70 per cent of his match fees for slow over rate. India lost the match and that was considered the beginning of the end for the Maharaja.
