Anil Kumble released a statement on social media shortly after quitting as coach of Team India on Tuesday. Kumble mentioned that the captain (Virat Kohli) had reservations about his coaching style and in the present scenario despite efforts of BCCI and CAC, the misunderstandings and issues couldn’t be resolved, hence this is the right time for him to move on.
Kumble’s resignation hasn’t gone down well with the Indian cricket fraternity who have hit out at the BCCI and Virat Kohli for letting go off a ‘good man’ who could have served Indian cricket well for a number of years. Kumble won every Test series under his coaching stint and was expected to carry on before recent issues with Virat Kohli came in the limelight.
While the disappointed fans – are anxious to know the other side of the story, the Indian captain, who is yet to comment, is currently travelling for the five-ODI and a T20 series with Caribbeans.
it just provoked people to make up their minds by listening only to one side of the story.Pls wait fr the other half of the story

It will be interesting to hear the other side of the story @imVkohli.. Whatever the reason/s, we need to get back to winning..

It's so senseless to blame Kohli without knowing the other side of the story.

Before you criticise Virat Kohli, first know the other side of the story too. Waiting for official statement from Virat Kohli.

The BCCI has retained the rest of its coaching staff for the West Indies series, with MV Sridhar supervising the team’s management.
India will play five one-day internationals in the Caribbean, with a Twenty20 international wrapping up the trip on July 9.
