"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.
