Indian captain Virat Kohli has created a new dilemma for BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) as he has conveyed his ‘strong reservations’ about head coach Anil Kumble, who has reapplied for the position.
According to a report in english daily ‘The Telegraph’, CAC members Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman along with BCCI’s acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary, CEO Rahul Johri and General Manager (cricket) Dr MV Sridhar held a meeting with Virat Kohli on the eve of Champions Trophy final.
“Kohli is very clear about where he stands vis-a-vis Kumble. It seems the relationship is beyond the repair stage, at least from Kohli’s side. However, the CAC will now meet Kumble and see if a patch-up is possible,” the report quoted a source as saying.
The CAC members will now meet Kumble to determine if a patch-up is possible between the two.
