Kumble said that although the BCCI had, several times, attempted to resolve the misunderstandings between him and the captain, it was apparent that the partnership was untenable, and therefore, he had chose to move on.
"Indian cricket needs his continued contribution in various capacities and wishes him all the best in his future endeavour". "I am sure Kumble must have been frustrated and must have said whatever he wanted".
"For us that is paramount", he concluded.
When he was asked about the differences with Kumble, Kohli stated that he could not break the culture of not disclosing dressing room conversations in public. Kumble has demanded separate contracts for red ball and white ball players and said that the captain be paid 25 per cent extra.
The BCCI is now seeking the assistance of the Cricket Advisory Committee in its search for a new head coach for the Senior India Men's Cricket Team. "One good thing about India media is that India media doesn't look into houses, bedrooms, so please don't look into dressing room", Rai said. Some players also didn't take kindly to an approach that bordered on hectoring rather than persuasion.
"Different individuals have different ways of functioning". The notion that the players got rid of a hard taskmaster because they are lazy is preposterous.
With Rohit Sharma rested Kohli said that Ajinkya Rahane will open alongside Shikhar Dhawan in the upcoming five-match ODI series starting today.
"We have a chance of beating India but only if we deliver on the day in all departments of the game".
Talking about the preparation to the ICC World Cup 2019, Prasanna said that Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni's spots in the playing XI should be reconsidered. More explosive hitters like Pant are also needed, especially with no certainty over how long Dhoni and Yuvraj can go on.
That series was played concurrently with the Champions Trophy, serving to highlight the steep decline of the former winners who failed for the first time in 42 years to qualify for a major International Cricket Council event.
Also, despite the fact that Kohli will not part of the selection process his influence over the team and his personal bonding with the candidate will hold the key in the next appointment.
