The Indian captain Rahul Dravid has rubbished all claims of differences in the team as reported in some channels owned by a Media house.

I had as much support (During the World Cup) as I needed and I was very happy with the support, he told the press on Wednesday, in reaction to the sting operation.

Meanwhile, former Captain Kapil Dev told a TV network that everybody knows that when you are not doing well, small things become big issues.

Former Cricketer Arun Lal said if Bhupinder Singh is to be believed as against Champion players, I will be very much shocked.

The sting operation, featuring some Indian selectors, had talked about the lack of total support of Tendulkar and Ganguly to Rahul Dravid due to their own "captaincy ambitions". It also had a selector blaming Greg Chappell for his "divide and rule" policy.

Meanwhile, former sports minister Shahnawaz Hussain has blamed the BCCI for doing "emotional blackmail" of our cricket loving country, and called for a more transparent selection procedure.
