Bishan Bedi Slams BCCI For Virat Kohli – Anil Kumble Fiasco
The last few weeks surrounding Indian cricket have been marred by the entire episode about the fallout between skipper Virat Kohli and former head coach Anil Kumble. While India as a unit enjoyed tremendous success under Kumble’s astute coaching, things were a little different behind the curtains in the dressing room. It was believed that several members including captain Virat Kohli himself had apparent differences with the legendary leg-spinner’s coaching style.
Things ultimately culminated when Kumble resigned just before the tour of the Caribbean after the team lost the Champions Trophy final to Pakistan at the Oval on June 18th. Targeting his guns against the BCCI is the former Indian captain and outspoken critic of the body, Bishan Singh Bedi.
Bedi, one of India’s most successful captains lashed out against the BCCI for mishandling the entire episode. He went on to say that it didn’t show a legend like Anil Kumble in the correct spirit.
“You have allowed this to develop in the first place. Who allowed this? They (BCCI) allowed. They are disqualified people, disqualified as far as Lodha panel is concerned, these BCCI officials,” said Bedi.
“I feel it was the most avoidable situation. It is not between who is the boss on the field and who is boss off the field. They both serve in the game in their own capacity. The need to agree to disagree is seldom followed. We are all grown up adults and we can have a difference of opinion. But we cannot have the different path,” the former captain added.
Mentioning his pity for Kumble, Bedi added,
“In this particular case, I feel sorry for Kumble. He is not given his fair due. If this can happen to Kumble, with the performance that he has had as a coach, can you imagine what is in store for who is stepping into his shoes?”
