Even before one could digest the shocking 180 run loss of Team India to arch rivals Pakistan in the Champions Trophy Finals, cricket lovers got shock when Team India coach Anil Kumble who brought many laurels to the country resigned from his post.
What is more shocking is it came out that Kumble and Kohli were not talking for more than six months right after the England series. This came as shock not only to fans but also to BCCI.
Fans reacted strongly to Kohli kicking out Kumble and Tollywood too is no exception. Some of the stars shared their feelings on the issue in the following manner.
Tejaswi Madivada said “Though Anil Kumble’s contract as the head coach was anyways ending with the Champions Trophy, but I am disappointed the way it happened. If you see his overall record as Team India’s coach, it has been remarkable. I think in this entire episode cricket has suffered. The team has per formed exceptionally well under his supervision and I feel it’s time to bury the hatchet and move on. As a fan of Indian cricket, I am only concerned about what happens on the field, rest is the management’s decision”
Harshavardhan Rane shared “From his amazing economy rate to taking ten wickets, he always looked like someone who knew what he was doing. I have never been able to doubt his decisions but it’s sad to see him go as he got the Indian team to where it is today.”
Praneetha said “I ‘ve always admired Anil Kumble and I have believed that’s he’s been a great coach. Whether it’s about encouraging bowlers to bat responsibly or providing a thriving environment for new entrants, he’s been a very positive influence on our Indian cricket team. So I’m really disappointed that he was asked to step down.”
