Amul releases witty ad on Virat Kohli-Anil Kumble fiasco

Kumble stepped down as India coach after the Champions Trophy defeat to Pakistan with reports emerging of a rift between the former leg-spinner and Kohli.

Kohli has opened up the whole team view on the Kumble, which is kind of unusual. There is a strong possibility that Kohli and his dirty brigade purposely lost the game to instigate Anil Kumble with whom the former had serious differences.

"His point of view is out there and we respect that decision", Kohli said in Port of Spain on Thursday, when asked to comment on Kumble's departure.

"I don't know what happened there, but if I have to make an opinion based on what has been reported in the media, I don't think Kumble did anything wrong".

While the team left for the Caribbean earlier on Tuesday, Kumble did not accompany the team raising doubts over his continuance as the head coach. Virat Kohli, who had led the Test side to unprecedented heights in the past year, was suddenly the villain of the piece, with Kumble the victim of his rampant ego and petulance.




The BCCI deputed M.V. Sridhar to supervise the team management for the Windies tour while Indian Premier League (IPL) Chairman Rajeev Shukla asserted on Wednesday that a new coach will be appointed before the Sri Lanka series next month.

Good luck to them I say, it can only be a good thing for the rest of us. But before leaving, he made sure he lobbed a grenade in the direction of the dressing room. "We have not been mandated by the SC to sit and judge a person's eligibility, non-eligibility", Rai said.

"I have total respect for him as a cricketer and what he's achieved for the nation in all the years that he's played". Indian team won handsomely through previous year in all formats and Kohli, who had scored four Test double centuries (West Indies, Antigua; New Zealand, Indore; England, Mumbai; Bangladesh, Hyderabad) in four consecutive series should be given his due as well.

The relationship with captain Virat Kohli will be paramount for the Advisory Committee and hence the person who comes in should also believe in sharing similar ideologies of the captain, which is to maintain the sanctity of the dressing room.

Kumble did not travel with the team to the West Indies, before he officially tendered his resignation. Meanwhile, Sanjay Bangar, and R Sridhar, will continue to remain the batting coach and the fielding coach, respectively.
