Sanctity of dressing room should be maintained: Kohli

24 Juin 2017

Yesterday, Anil Kumble informed BCCI and the whole cricket community that he was not willing to continue as Indian cricket team coach.

Former Indian cricketer and renowned commentator Ravi Shastri has sought a guarantee of selection from Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as next coach of the Indian team before formally applying for the post, it emerged on Thursday.

Kumble had resigned from the post of the India's head coach after a fallout with Indian captain Virat Kohli.

The BCCI had extended Kumble's contract to the end of the Windies tour, though his contract was originally up at the end of the Champions Trophy.

Almost one year after being appointed as the coach of the side, Kumble chose to step down from the post shortly after India's Champions Trophy 2017 campaign which saw them finish as the runners-up to arch-rivals Pakistan in a one-sided final.

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.

"Before the Sri Lanka tour, the coach will be appointed and it will be the best coach for India", said Shukla. But BCCI chose to give it a try and named Kumble as the coach for West Indies tour.

However, there are some who believe that what Kumble did was right and that it was the job of the coach to tell the players where they were lacking and the areas they should improve.

However, during the final meeting between Anil Kumble and Virat Kohli, Kumble realised that the damage was beyond fix and hence tendered his resignation on June 20, 2017.

Soon after Kumble's appointment, Kohli had tweeted on June 23 a year ago, greeting him with a smiley and expressed hopes of a great future under his guidance. "And we all respect him totally", Kohli very consciously made it clear that he won't talk about coach Kumble's role.

"It's his opinion, which I respect".

The Indian team is presently in Trinidad to play their first ODI match against Windies in a five match series. Sehwag is one of the front runners to replace him even though the BCCI has invited fresh applications for the post. "The assignment of the new head coach will be till the next World Cup to be held in June 2019 in England", said BCCI acting president CK Khanna.
