Kolkata:Former BCCI chief Raj Singh Dungarpur today chose to downplay the 'finger controversy' surrounding Indian coach Greg Chappell saying it was a 'trivial issue'.

"It would have been better if he had not done it. However, it is a trivial issue," he told reporters on the sidelines of the 76th BCCI AGM here.

Dungarpur sought to bury the controversy by emphasising that it was a 'non-existent and not so serious' issue.

A controversy had risen after television footage showed Greg Chappell making an indecent finger gesture towards cricket fans booing him as he boarded the Indian team bus after a practice session on the eve of the November 25 India-South Africa encounter at Eden Gardens.
