Remember how Virat Kohli cleared the rumors about the tiff going on between him and Team India’s coach Anil Kumble just before the ICC Champions Trophy?
Unfortunately, those were perhaps not rumors after all. Two days after the embarrassing defeat of India at the hands of Pakistan, Kumble resigned. People were expecting that Kumble will be continuing his services as the coach but the legendary spinner has stepped down from the post.
Kumble’s resignation has now become a controversy. Kumble’s post on Twitter clearly states that Kohli had problems with the coach. While BCCI wanted Kumble to continue as the team’s coach, Kohli wasn’t happy with the suggestion. In the light of the same, Kumble decided to move on, giving his best wishes to the team for the upcoming matches.
Here’s what Kumble posted after stepping down,

Kumble’s post took no time in going viral on social media. In reply to his post, Tweeple stood in his support.
Twitterati not just slammed Virat Kohli but also made fun of Virender Sehwag who is in the list of the aspirants for the position of Team India’s coach.
Here’s how Twitter is reacting to the news of Kumble’s resignation:

@anilkumble1074 stepping down shows even CAC (Sachin, Ganguly, Laxman) failed to broker peace between him and Virat Kohli…

I don’t think we deserve Kumble. Too much disciplined, intelligent, and visionary to coach this team.

Kohli: Sir team meeting mein pitch pe discuss kar lete hain.
Sehwag: Wo sab ho jaayega. Pahele batao aj birthday kiska hai…

If it is true that @anilkumble1074 has stepped down as coach, Indian cricket has let itself lose an outstanding resource.
