Mumbai:Hours after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)-induced truce to put the lid on his war of words with coach Greg Chappell, Indian captain Sourav Ganguly said he would have no problem working with the Australian great in the future despite their recent acrimony.

"I would have no problem working with coach Greg Chappell," were his comments to media persons almost four hours after the Review Committee of the board, chaired by its president Ranbir Singh Mahendra, brought about the rapprochement between the warring factions.

But Ganguly refused to elaborate on the happenings in the five-hour meeting that specifically dealt with this burning controversy, which had been rocking Indian cricket for more than a fortnight.

"Mr Mahendra has already spoken on television. I have no comments (to make) on that," he said referring to the board chief's media conference after the special board committee's meeting.

After announcing the compromise between Ganguly and Chappell, Mahendra also declared that the board has decided to put an immediate gag on the Indian team members, including the coach and captain, from talking to the media or writing.

"Our form in Test cricket is good, but we have to improve in One-dayers, especially in the finals," Ganguly added.
