Legends react after Anil Kumble steps down as Head Coach of India

Hours after resigning as Head Coach of Team India, Anil Kumble has said he was “informed for the first time yesterday Monday by the BCCI that the captain had reservations with my style and about my continuing as head coach”. While stating that the CAC (cricket advisory committee) entrusted with the responsibility of deciding who will be the future coach had backed him for the job, Kumble said “it was apparent the partnership with Virat Kohli was untenable , and I therefore believe it is best for me to move on”.

The former leg-spinner who accounts for most number of test wickets by an Indian, Anil Kumble has stepped down as head coach of the Indian Cricket Team just 4 days right before the limited-overs tour of the West Indies, even as the team was mid-flight to the Caribbean. He stayed back in London after the Champions Trophy which concluded on Sunday; as the chairman of the ICC’s cricket committee, he is supposed to be participating in the chief executives committee conference there.

Here is a look at how different cricketing Legends and experts all over the world voiced their opinion on twitter regarding Anil Kumble’s ouster:
