Virat Kohli Forgets To Wish Anil Kumble On His Birthday, Tweets Fanboy Moment With Arijit Singh
It seems Virat Kohli is yet to get over the bitter undisclosed incident that took place with Anil Kumble that led to the latter stepping down from the post of head coach few days after this year’s Champions Trophy.
A couple of days after the tournament in England, Kumble had resigned as Team India coach and stated that Virat Kohli’s reservations over his ‘style’ of coaching was the reason behind it. In fact, the buildup to the Champions Trophy was marred with news of an alleged rift between the duo. Kohli had managed to douse the fire during a press conference before the tournament-opener on June 4 but it everything became crystal clear when Kumble dropped the bombshell.
But while Kumble made sure to reveal the reasons which compelled him to take the dire step, Kohli refrained from revealing his side of the story. And while everyone is still speculating as to what went wrong, one thing is more or less sure that not everything was well between the duo as Kohli did not wish the former India skipper and head coach on his 47th birthday on Monday (October 17) though he made sure to post a ‘fanboy’ moment with Bollywood singer Arijit Singh on the same day.
“Pure fanboy moment for me. What an amazing person he is. No one has captivated me with their voice like this man. God bless you Arijit. ??,” Kohli wrote on Twitter.
