Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Friday expressed his views on Anil Kumble's resignation as head coach of Indian Cricket Team and said that he respects his decision. However, it looks like the coast is clear for Kohli-favorite Ravi Shastri to make a comeback as coach. The CAC conveyed to the BCCI that, in the best interest of Indian cricket, the differences needed to be sorted out before moving forward.
"I don't know about his coaching style but as a player, as an individual and as a senior he is just brilliant", said Sehwag, who played under Kumble's Test captaincy. The Indian cricket board is looking to fill the post vacated by Anil Kumble on Tuesday.

But before leaving, he made sure he lobbed a grenade in the direction of the dressing room. The captain further asserted that he can not break the culture of not divulging dressing room details in public.
"I have total respect for him as a cricketer and what he has achieved [for the] nation", Kohli said. For us that is paramount.
Unfortunately, he was not in agreement with Kumble's thought process for the team.
