New Delhi:  Former captain Kapil Dev on Wednesday refused to believe that there was 'rift' within the Indian team in Australia but said the BCCI should step in to sort out the "difference of opinion".

Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni had defended the rotation policy of the three openers in the team on the ground that they are slow while fielding but Virender Sehwag said he and other two senior players were ignorant of the reason to rest one of them in a match.

Kapil said instead of calling it a 'rift' within the team, he would prefer to term it as difference of opinion.

"I would not want to call it a rift within the team but would prefer to term it as a difference of opinion. It's difficult to comment on the issue because we don't know what exactly happened there in Australia," Kapil said.

Asked further how a senior player like Sehwag could not have been told about the reason for the rotation policy among the openers, Kapil said, "Even the parents have different opinions and we should not play it up.

"The captain (Dhoni) may have a different opinion and normally his opinion is respected. I think the BCCI will have to step in and sort out the matter with the players for the good of the team and country," said Kapil at a cricket clinic for youngsters at the Australian High Commission here.

"The players will have to understand that they are carrying the reputation of the country. If there is a misunderstanding it should be sorted out. They are playing for the country," he added.

Kapil said that in his opinion Sachin Tendulkar should have retired from one-day cricket on a high after India won the World Cup last year, but it was upto the player to call it quits or not.
