Amid the rift between Anil Kumble and Indian skipper Virat Kohli taking different turns every day, former Indian opener and the wittiest Twitterati of the recent times, Virender Sehwag has slammed the media reports which portrayed his Instagram post as an indirect jibe on the Kohli-Kumble spat.
Anil Kumble, who stepped down from the post of Team India’s Head Coach on June 20, took to his official Twitter account and posted his resignation letter where he had clearly mentioned that the relationship between him and Captain Virat Kohli had become ‘untenable’. He also mentioned that the current Indian captain has ‘reservation with his style’. This decision of Anil Kumble appeared to be a shocker for the people from the cricket fraternity and also for the players from the Indian cricket team. Further, several media reports also stated that The Indian players were unaware of the fact that Kumble would give up his post after the Champions Trophy.
And now after 2 days of that incident, Virender Sehwag, who usually spreads knowledge on Twitter through his witty tweets, took to his official Instagram account to share one his pictures from the time when he was an active member of Team India. In the picture, he could be seen spinning a volleyball on his index fingers. He shared the picture with a caption which said,”Finger pointing never got anything done #unglipenachaao”.
As soon as the picture was shared on social media, several media organisations ran reports that this post is Sehwag’s opinion on the ongoing rift between the former coach and the captain. Sehwag took no time to clear the air and this time, he took to his official Twitter handle and wrote,”How do u have fuel to spin things out of context.If u have any integrity telecast an apology on same channel &do a show on how u mislead ppl.”

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli broke his silence on Anil Kumble’s resignation. Ahead of the first ODI against West Indies, while speaking to media personnel, Virat said,”Anil Bhai has taken the decision to step out and we respect the decision. I will never reveal dressing room details and maintain the sanctity of the dressing room. We have created a culture over the last 3-4 years that whatever happens in the change room, we’ve tried to keep it private and highly confidential throughout.”
