Kohli: We all respect Kumble's decision

If Virat Kohli Thinks He Is The Boss Let India Play Without A Coach Erapalli Prasanna

Sehwag is said to be a frontrunner to step into the shoes of Anil Kumble.

He also guided India to one-day global series wins over New Zealand and England with losses coming only in a Twenty20 series against the West Indies and in last week's Champions Trophy final, where they lost to Pakistan. With the team already over the Atlantic and on their way to an ODI series in the Caribbean, Kumble announced that he had lost interest in staying in the job. "He (Anil) wants to be the alpha-male in the dressing room". The Delhi dasher has publicly backed players such as Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin (his contemporaries and contenders for captaincy) and gone on record to say about their importance to the team and what they bring to the table. Kumble was on the run for an extension and as a stopgap, he was asked to continue with the cricket team tour of the #West Indies.

The reaction, with emotions at fever pitch following the loss to Pakistan, was predictable. The present bunch of youngsters including Kohli for whom money is above national pride was not comfortable with their head coach and Kumble was not one who could take this nonsense for long.

And it's not just the laymen either. All three have a special place in Indian cricket. In those four hours, he spelt out his fears to the CAC, citing why the team didn't need Kumble, his rigidity in certain matters, the overbearing nature and most importantly the way he addressed the players. However, it looks like the coast is clear for Kohli-favorite Ravi Shastri to make a comeback as coach.

Kumble explained his decision to step down owing to the skipper's reservations about his "style" of functioning.




Except that Kohli wasn't going to do anything of the sort. I have total respect for him as a cricketer and what he has achieved [for the] nation. For us that is paramount.

" And something that I would not express in details in a public scenario".

In other sports, Kidambi Srikanth became the first Indian men's player to lift the Indonesia Open Super Series title. This is a very good decision by CAC because only a healthy relationship between captain and coach can take Indian cricket forward. According to the Kohli, the locker room was never fond of the Kumble.

Sambit Bal, editor in chief of ESPNCricinfo.com, said the manner of Kumble's exit set an unwelcome precedent for Indian cricket.
