Indian skipper Virat Kohli and vice captain Rohit Sharma can have differences off the field but it should not matter as long as their on field commitment is up to the mark, Kapil Dev said.

There are reports suggesting a rift between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma after team India’s semi final exit, even though Indian skipper Virat Kohli rebuffed the claims ahead of team’s departure to the United States.

"There can be off the field differences but it depends how you play on the field. Everyone should look into that," Kapil said

"Off the field, the way of thinking can be different, approach can be different. But when you're playing there's only one aim -- how we can win a match. That is important. Differences of opinion does not mean you will be pulling somebody down," Kapil, whose hot and cold relationship with Sunil Gavaskar used to be headlined during the early and mid 80's.

He also slammed the media urging them to be more responsible while reporting.

"You have to do your job, right. Thoda bahut toh aap bhi help karte ho naa rumour banane mein. (You people also do your bit in spreading rumours)," he said.
