WHY KUMBLE-KOHLI COMMUNICATION HAD STOPPED SIX MONTHS AGO ?

The BCCI top brass had an inkling that all was not well between coach Anil Kumble and captain Virat Kohli but they were taken aback when they got to know that the duo had not been on talking terms for the “last six months”.  Another important thing that has come out in the open was that the Chief Advisory Committee, comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, also didn’t straightaway give the green light to Kumble’s extension. “There had been reports that the CAC had okayed Kumble’s extension. They had okayed his extension but with a rider. They had said that Kumble should be retained provided all pending issues are resolved,” a senior BCCI official, who was present in London during the whole episode, told.  Post the ICC Champions Trophy final, there were three separate meetings at the Indian team’s hotel.  The first was where Kumble met the BCCI top brass and members of CAC followed by Kohli meeting them. The last and the most “eventful” meeting was when Kohli and Kumble were made to sit across the table. The talks failed completely as there was no communication. The Rediff.com : 22nd. June,17
