A day after Anil Kumble resigned from the post of team India’s head coach, reactions for all quarters are coming in. After India’s batting legend Sunil Gavaskar, India’s only gold medallist in an individual event at the Olympics, Abhinav Bindra too expressed his opinion on the issue.
Abhinav Bindra took to his official Twitter handle and indirectly advised Virat Kohli how to handle his rift with Anil Kumble. Abhinav Bindra wrote: “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.#justsaying.”
While Bindra did not named Kumble in his tweet, but the timings of his tweet is surely pointing towards Virat Kohli.

On June 20, legendary leg-spinner Anil Kumble decided against continuing as the head coach of the Indian cricket team.
“The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirms that Anil Kumble has withdrawn his services as the head coach for the senior India men’s team,” BCCI said in a statement.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 in the post,” it added.
The Indian team on Tuesday left for the West Indies, where they are to play five One-day Internationals (ODI) and a solitary T20 International.
