Mumbai: After the defeat in the final match of the Champions Trophy against Pakistan in 2017, Team India had a big problem. At that time, the argument between captain Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble escalated to the point that Kumble had to resign. Many things were being discussed on the quarrel between Virat and Anil Kumble. But now former Team India manager Ratnakar Shetty has revealed the reason for the controversy.
Former Team India manager Ratnakar Shetty said, “Virat and Kumble have been arguing for a long time. Virat Kohli felt that Anil Kumble could not stand with his players and his behavior created tension in the team.”
For this reason, Anil Kumble had to resign after the 2017 Champions Trophy. Kumble was the coach of Team India for only 1 year.
On the controversy, Ratnakar Shetty says that Kumble was disliked by many as a coach and he wanted to step down as coach.
Explaining the matter, Shetty said that Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar had met him during the 2017 IPL. Sehnag then told them that Dr. Sridhar had asked him to send an application for the post of coach. He later attended a COA meeting with Anil Kumble and Virat Kohli in Hyderabad.
