Hours after resigning as India coach, Anil Kumble has said he was "informed for the first time yesterday [Monday] by the BCCI that the captain had reservations with my style and about my continuing as head coach". While stating that the cricket advisory committee (CAC) charged with deciding on who will be coach had backed him for the job, Kumble said "it was apparent the partnership [with Virat Kohli] was untenable, and I therefore believe it is best for me to move on".
Kumble stepped down as coach four days before the limited-overs tour of the Caribbean begins, even as the team was mid-flight to the West Indies. Kumble had remained in London after the Champions Trophy which ended on Sunday; as chairman of the ICC's cricket committee, he will be attending the chief executives committee meeting there.
The BCCI announced on Thursday that the former India captain Anil Kumble will be Team India's new Coach for next one year.
The BCCI received 57 applications for Team India Coach, including Kumble's. He was interviewed by the Cricket Advisory Committee, comprising his former team mates Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman. The committee interviewed Kumble and a handful of other candidates in Kolkata on Tuesday, and on Wednesday, they made their recommendations to the BCCI.
