Rahul Dravid dismisses reports of a rift within the Indian dressing room.

Indian batsman Rahul Dravid has strongly denied claims that captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has fallen out with vice-captain Virender Sehwag.

After losing the first two Tests against Australia, there were reports of a rift in the Indian camp but Dravid has dismissed these rumours.

Dravid said: "When you lose 2-0, that's part and parcel of what happens, suddenly everything is wrong, so there's absolutely no truth to those matters."

The 39-year-old also shrugged off comments made by Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin suggesting that the Indian team were 'mentally fragile'.

"I don't think we need anyone's comments to motivate ourselves," he added.

"If you're playing for India you don't need anybody's comments to motivate you. I don't think we're that bothered."

The third Test of the series will begin in Perth on Friday morning.
