New Coach before the Sri Lankan Tour: Rajeev Shukla

BCCI senior official Rajiv Shukla said that despite the best efforts, the Board failed to resolve the differences between Anil Kumble and Virat Kohli, but he assured that the new coach would be appointed before the next year's Sri Lanka tour of India.

Shukla said that the BCCI made best efforts on its behalf to resolve this issue. Acting Secretary and CEO discussed this matter with Kumble and Kohli in detail. The Board also reached to the COA (Vinod Rai) and sought his opinion on this matter. He said that efforts were made to resolve the issue, but in the end there was no result and Kumble decided to step down.

What did Kumble say?
Kumble said in his statement that Kohli had some objections to his coaching style and his involvement became unstable. Shukla said that BCCI gives good wishes to Kumble for the future. Meanwhile, the BCCI has decided to appoint a new coach for the team. Before the tour of Sri Lanka, the coach will be appointed and this will be the best coach for India.

Rajeev Shukla unfolds the story of the spat

When asked to Shukla that only Virat Kohli had opposed Kumble as coach, he said that these are all speculative ones. I said beforehand that sometimes there are some differences and the BCCI has done its best to solve them, but sometimes things do not work. Many times it happens that you can not get along well with anyone. He further said that only the captain was not given importance. We gave importance to everyone. Many times the differences arise. They are also human.
