No Rift Between Anil Kumble – Virat Kohli – Vinod Rai

Vinod Rai, the Head of the Committee of Administrators (COA) appointed by the Supreme Court of India, has cleared the news of any rift between coach Anil Kumble and skipper Virat Kohli. While talking to India Today regarding the issue, Rai said,

“Nothing reinforces it. I can assure you that our captain Virat Kohli is an absolutely through professional and Anil Kumble is a person of great achievements.”

Earlier, there was a news of an alledged rift between Kohli and Kumble but the skipper himself played down the news by terming it as a false story ahead of the clash against Pakistan.
The reports of any tussle among both the stalwarts came into the public domain when Virat Kohli allegedly moved out of the net session ahead of the practice game against Bangladesh as soon as Kumble arrived there. The news got air when Virat Kohli himself asked Virender Sehwag to apply for the post of Head Coach of the team.
A total of five former players apart from Kumble are in the fray of becoming the next coach of the Indian team, with Kumble getting a direct entry in the list.
On being asked about BCCI exercise to invite applications for the coach, Rai called it as regular exercise and also mentioned that Kumble was offered the post for a period of one year. The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising of likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman will decide the new coach for the Indian cricket team. Rai called the trio as a credible committee,

“You must acknowledge that there is no more credible committee than that of Sachin, Sourav, and VVS Laxman,” he added.

The CAC will appoint the new coach after the conclusion of Champions Trophy. Meanwhile, it has been learnt that Anil Kumble has applied for the post again. The India limited over the tour to West Indies will be the first stint of the new coach since taking over the reins.
