Rahul Dravid begins the post-series #INDvWI press conference with a laugh. First question is about whether he's hurt by Wriddhiman Saha's words.

"Thanks for congratulating us on winning this T20I series!" (1/6)
"I'm not hurt at all. I have a deep respect for Wriddhiman Saha and his achievements and contributions to Indian cricket. My conversation with him came from that place. He deserved honesty and clarity. I didn't want him to hear about it from the media." - Dravid on Saha (2/6)
"These are conversations I have with players. I'm not hurt about it at all because I don't expect players to like all the messages or agree with them. But that doesn't mean you brush it under the carpet and don't have the conversations" - Dravid on Saha (3/6)
"Even now, before every XI is picked either me or Rohit will speak to those not playing. It's natural for players at times to get upset. I just felt my team deserved clarity and honest and that's all I was trying to convey." - Dravid on Saha (4/6)
"We have only 3 Tests this year and with Rishabh Pant having established himself, we were looking to groom a younger wicketkeeper. This doesn't change my feelings or respect for Wriddhi or his contribution." - Dravid on Saha (5/6)
"The easiest thing for me is to not have these conversations but that's not who I am. I hope at some stage they will respect the fact that I was at least able to front up and have these conversations with them." - Dravid on Saha (6/6)
