Anil Kumble was impeccable in his role as coach: Committee of Administrators

At the end of it all, the aggressive captain got what he wanted.

Bangar also mentioned that losing the coach just before the tour has not affected the team in any way.

He has a point.

On the eve of the second ODI against the West Indies in Port of Spain, questions related to the Kumble episode were directed at Bangar. They are helping, guiding the players.

To say that the team did not know that Kumble was not joining them in the West Indies and that the players came to know that he had quit through telephone messages sounds odd.

Kumble is also the chairman of the International Cricket Council's cricket committee and has stayed back in London for the world governing body's meeting this week. Take a look at how Bayliss has taken English cricket forward. "Great things in store for Indian Cricket with you".

"We never allowed such things to be leaked". Who should be blamed for the fiasco?

The case was the subject of the hit docu-series " Making a Murderer ", a Netflix production that was released in December 2015 . Brendan Dassey was sentenced to life in prison in 2007 in photographer Teresa Halbach's death on Halloween two years earlier.


If there was a problem between Kumble and Kohli, the BCCI should have appointed a professional mediator. Or, is it the players ganging up? That, it seems, was communicated to the Committee of Administrators' chief Vinod Rai, besides top officials of the Board and, of course, the CAC....

While he felt that Kumble is entitled to his opinion, in a roundabout manner, the skipper spoke about how dressing room details are sacred to him, which, at any cost, cant be shared with the public. "Too often I see captaincy that appears to be the result of the previous evening's planning and, despite ample evidence that it's hindering the team's chances of victory, it remains the plan throughout the day", he added. "I can not say anything more about it".

"These need to be valued for the partnership to be effective".

"They have done these things in the last four or five months and if they manage to keep themselves fit, motivated - and I can definitely vouch that they are very motivated to play - you can only stand to benefit from their continued presence in the team", Bangar concluded. "A statement from Kohli will help clear the air, saying "this is what I feel and my issue with Kumble". "And we all respect him totally". "This (the revenue distribution) has become a dispute between the Australian players and Cricket Australia now".

In Kohli, India have a fantastic leader and one of their best captains in recent memory, rivalled only by MS Dhoni, but even he couldn't build a team capable of being consistent overseas. Professional captains or coaches won't fall out on one issue. Even Indian cricket stalwarts have taken sides. It could only have been the last nail as Kohli said about the incident after the Champions Trophy. "For us that's paramount".

"I have total respect for him as a cricketer and what he has achieved". But if Kohli is more anxious about having things his own way than finding a way to work together and win matches, India will continue to produce inconsistent results.

"Quitting as coach was Kumble's personal decision". If the captain now insists on a particular coach, will the CAC pander to his whims as he appears more powerful today.
