After almost a month’s drama, former Indian captain Anil Kumble stepped down from the post of Team India coach on Wednesday evening opening a new chapter in Indian cricket. Probably, for the first time, a coach was asked to step down from his post as the captain wasn’t happy with him. What makes the entire scenario worse is the fact that the Indian cricket team was actually doing well under Anil Kumble. It won the Test series in West Indies last year and followed it with victories against New Zealand, Australia, Bangladesh and England at home. Indian cricket team dominated the oppositions during this time and went on to become the number one Test side.

So, obviously, when the news of Anil Kumble’s resignation broke, the fans were not very happy about it. As soon as Kumble posted his full statement on Twitter and confirmed that differences with Virat Kohli were the reason behind his resignation, Twitterati couldn’t help but blast the Indian captain. One of the Twitter users was so angry that he even took on Virender Sehwag who is now a front-runner for the job. “I wonder if Indian team have issues with man like Anil Kumble what will happen if Sehwag becomes Indian team coach. #PAKvIND,” he wrote.

Even the former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar described the resignation of Anil Kumble as a sad day for Indian cricket and patted him for doing a great job in his one-year stint. “I have very little knowledge about the differences between Virat and Anil. But it is a really sad day for Indian cricket,” Gavaskar said. “India have won everything since the time Anil took over. I can’t see Anil doing much wrong in one year. Difference happen in any team but see at the results,” he told NDTV.
