Anil Kumble steps down as head coach of India

Anil Kumble steps down as head coach of India”

Kumble stepped down as India coach on Tuesday citing differences with skipper Virat Kohli. "Before the Sri Lanka tour, the coach will be appointed and it will be the best coach for India".

However, Kohli, before India's opening encounter at the Champions Trophy against Pakistan, rejected the reports of him having a rift with the head coach, saying they were mere speculations which have been created by the people.

Kumble tweeted, "though BCCI attempted to resolve misunderstandings between the captain and me, it was apparent that the partnership was untenable, and I therefore believe it is best for me to move on".

It is known that the alleged differences between Kohli and Kumble led to the legendary Indian leg-spinner quit the job of head coach, needless to say evoking diverse reactions among fans and cricket fraternity alike. "The assignment of the new head coach will be till the next World Cup to be held in June 2019 in England", said BCCI acting president CK Khanna. They have coached the national teams in the sub-continent, which could go in their favour when the Cricket Advisory Committee comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman decide to rope Kumble's replacement.

"When the coach is selected, captain has not got any role in that".

Although Kumble's term was extended until the end of the West Indies tour, he didn't leave with the team for the Caribbean and two days later, announced his resignation. "So who do you want as coach" and that's it. "If you look at the performance of last one year, the performance was extremely good", he added. "I can't see Anil doing much wrong in one year".

Think of worldwide cricket coaches and be reminded (for those old enough) of the television interviewer Robin Day's famous put-down to John Nott, the former Conservative cabinet minister.

The BCCI has already invited applications for the position. He was a direct entry into the coach selection process while the others who applied for the post were Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus and Lalchand Rajput and Dodda Ganesh.
