first_imgVirat Kohli on Thursday deleted a tweet he had put out welcoming Anil Kumble as India coach in June 2016.WATCH FULL VIDEOKumble had stepped down as India coach after a successful one year term at the end India’s Champions Trophy campaign in England. Soon after putting in his papers in, the former India captain said he had stepped down because the BCCI told him that Kohli was not happy with his style of captaincy. “I was informed for the first time yesterday by the BCCI that the Captain had reservations with my ‘style’ and about my continuing as the Head Coach. I was surprised since I had always respected the role boundaries between Captain and Coach. Though the BCCI attempted to resolve the 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,” Kumble wrote on Tuesday in a statement.Kumble’s original contract expired with the team’s Champions Trophy campaign, but the former captain was tipped to get an extension after enjoying a successful run during his year in charge.Last year the BCCI formed the CAC, comprising former players Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, who chose Kumble for the job.However, reports had emerged of a rift between Kumble and Kohli before the Champions Trophy got underway. While Kohli denied there was any trouble in the dressing room, Kumble’s statement after his resignation gave it all away.(With inputs from Reuters)advertisementlast_img read more
