MUMBAI: Former Indian leg-spinner and ex-Indian cricket team’s Head Coach Anil Kumble finally tweeted the reasons he resigned from his post following India’s humiliating loss to Pakistan.
Anil Kumble resigned as the Head Coach of India after Pakistan trounced India by 180 runs in the final of the Champions Trophy 2017 tournament. Kumble said that his partnership with Kohli was ‘untenable’ hence it was necessary that he quit.
“It was apparent the partnership [with Virat Kohli] was untenable, and I therefore believe it is best for me to move on,” he wrote in the tweet message.
Kohli also revealed in his tweet message that the CAC and the BCCI both wanted him to continue as the coach of India. However, Kumble claimed that he had been told for the very first time on June 19 that Virat Kohli had reservations with his ‘style’ of coaching.
“In light of these ‘reservations’, I believe it is best I hand over this responsibility to whomever the CAC and BCCI deem fit,” he wrote.
