It was just a verbal talk. The boys had gone there for dinner and were harassed by Indian fans and there was some argument over that,' said Biswal.Nehra, on the other hand, denied any such incident.'I came to know about it only while reading the newspapers in London. I was surprised to see where this news came from. It is baseless.''We went to have dinner there and were watching the West Indies and Australia match. About the rest, I have no knowledge,' he said.'No one said anything to us. There were many fans from all over the world.'On team's performance, Nehra said: 'We are all disappointed. We had a good team and we could have done better. But it's a part of the game. The same team won World Cup two years ago.'
