Veteran cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle on Tuesday said that Anil Kumble’s ouster as team India coach was inevitable following his rift with Virat Kohli.

Kumble had stepped down from the position on Tuesday. The development was confirmed by BCCI later in a statement.

“While the Cricket Advisory Committee had endorsed an extension to his tenure as Head Coach, Anil Kumble has decided not to continue as the coach,” BCCI statement read.

Bhogle took to Twitter to express his views and said that Indian Cricket had lost an outstanding resource in the form of Kumble.

Bhogle hoped that BCCI would find a bigger role for Kumble in future.

Bhogle added that in case of a feud between captain and coach, the captain was bound to have his way.

BCCI’s CAC consisting of Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly has been given the responsibility to select new coaach for the Indian team.
