Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble are apparently at cross roads over matters not relating to cricket but that is not what we saw today. The Indian Cricket team is in England for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, where they will defend the title which they won in 2013. The Indian Cricket team open their title defense against arch-rivals Pakistan. Earlier, we saw Mahendra Singh Dhoni giving throw downs during practise. Indian team looks in good shape after their two warm-up games, where they ticked all the boxes. Rohit Sharma for that matter is fresh of a IPL win for Mumbai Indians where he was the captain of the side.

But that is not that has caught our attention, it is something else. Minutes after the session, the Indian cricketers were seen obliging their fans with autographs. In fact, the second warm-up match against Bangladesh saw a nearly full capacity crowd for a non-consequential match just goes to show the fan following the men in blue enjoy any where they go. Virat Kohli was leading the pack when it came to signing. Rohit Sharma was also doing the same along with Anil Kumble.
Surprising, to see Rohit Sharma signing Sachin Tendulkar’s autobiography.
Anil Kumble, the current coach of India for this series is going to be replaced soon as BCCI has already invited applications for replacing Anil Kumble.
