New Delhi:Indian captain Saurav Ganguly on Wednesday termed as a "mistake" stand-in skipper Rahul Dravid's decision to declare the innings in the Multan Test when Sachin Tendulkar was six short of his double century but suggested that the controversy be put behind.

"Let's forget about it (the declaration) and go ahead and win the series," Ganguly said.

"It's no point making it an issue. Whoever has made a mistake has made a mistake. It's for the team to accept it, it's for all of us to accept it... so let's not make it an issue," Ganguly told ESPN.

"It's a mistake made in the team. We are friends. As friends, we have made mistakes. As friends, we forgive each other, whoever made a mistake, without bothering to find out who made a mistake and finish this off as an issue."

"Whether it's Sachin, Rahul, myself or John or whoever has made a mistake let's forget about it and go ahead and win the series," Ganguly said.
