Kohli, Kumble 'rift' shakes India

Kohli, Kumble 'rift' shakes India

India is slated to play in West Indies, South Africa and against Australia and Sri Lanka later this year. In the words of one official familiar with the details, Kumble has been conducting himself like a "headmaster" at a school. But Kohli knows that his men have done the trick at each turn, even if the cricket was mostly at home where Team India has the distinct advantage.

Speaking to media ahead of the much-awaited clash, when asked to comment on the reports of his alleged difference with Kumble, Kohli said, "There have been a lot of speculations and things being written by people without actually being part of the change room, which is unusual". You should be good enough to handle a cricket ball, no matter whom you play.

Heaping praise on the Indian players, Fleming said: "I watched these players recently in the Indian Premier League". He played a lot of cricket for India during the home series and after he finished the home series, he was worn out and we saw some signs in the last 3-4 games in IPL. "I completed all the procedure on time, and the application was sent much earlier", McDermott said. This has been followed a year ago as well. I don't see anything very different from what has happened in the past. "They want to follow the same pattern".

The "Batsman" Virat Kohli knows more than a thing or two about how to win matches against Pakistan but for "skipper" Virat Kohli, the tournament as a whole would test his maturity. "He should have a vision that should take the team ahead for the next 8 to 10 years", he said. "It is not from a single source to say the least".

Congress booklet row: BJP demands Sonia's apology
The book was released at a press conference in Lucknow which was attended by Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Raj Babbar. Targeting the BJP, he said its website had on March 28, 2014 shown a similar map.

"I don't think any other team also puts a price on just one game".

Kumble has not yet spoken publicly about the situation. Umesh, who has emerged as one of the best bowlers India has seen in recent years, was only known for brilliant pace. That alleged tiff is supposed to be behind the BCCI decision to advertise again for a coach. The Times of India said for a new contract, Kumble is an automatic candidate. Ganguly is now in England, doing television commentary for the official broadcaster of the Champions Trophy. Kumble is a direct entrant to the coach's selection process, which will be looked after by the advisory committee, including Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VV Laxman.Gavaskar, however, was impressed with Kumble's stint and achievements so far as team has performed exceptionally ever since he was made the coach. "But he was starting to come back to form", he said.

Even as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has remained tight-lipped on who the applicants are for the job, the former Australia quick, who has also served as his nation's bowling coach for a while, confirmed to Sportstar his interest in the job.

Now, it is clear that Kumble is not the one holding the steering wheel anymore.
