Yesterday, Anil Kumble informed BCCI and the whole cricket community that he was not willing to continue as Indian cricket team coach. The difference of opinion between him and Virat Kohli had forced him to step down. India’s ace shooter and only gold medalist in an individual event at the Olympics, Abhinav Bindra took a dig at Kohli and slammed him indirectly.
He tweeted: “My biggest teachers was coach Uwe.I hated him!But stuck with him for 20 years.He always told me things I did not want to hear.

Meanwhile, he was not alone as the famous badminton player, Jwala Gutta replied to Abhinav and wrote: ““@Abhinav_Bindra Sometimes that’s the important part of training I remember my sir doing the same…he still does it!!!”

On the other side Anil Kumble in his thank you post wrote: “I was informed for the first time yesterday by the BCCI that the Captain had reservations with my ‘style’ and about my continuing as the Head Coach. I was surprised since I had always respected the role boundaries between Captain and Coach. Though the BCCI attempted to resolve the misunderstandings between the Captain and me, it was apparent that the partnership was untenable, and I, therefore, believe it is best for me to move on.”
