Anil Kumble wanted say in the playing XI, claims BCCI official

Part of the reason for India's success in 2011 lay in Dhoni and Gary Kirsten, then coach, utilising the games in the previous two years to test out players like Kohli, Ashwin and Yusuf Pathan. This was followed by an ICC announcement that Afghanistan and Ireland have been added to the list of Test playing nations, increasing the number to 12. Kumble's character is relevant to any discussion about India's future coaching appointments.

To say that the team did not know that Kumble was not joining them in the West Indies and that the players came to know that he had quit through telephone messages sounds odd.

Earlier, we also went through the news that both had stopped talking to each other from past six months and the relationship between them became weak even after a discussion with the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) that consisted of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, and VVS Laxman.

Unfortunately, he was not in agreement with Kumble's thought process for the team. To put someone of a similar mind-set in a position where he's advising the captain is inviting confrontation.

The problem with Indian cricket today has more to do with administration than actual deficiencies in the team.

"The best off-field assistance for a captain will come from a good managerial type".

"All that we have tried to do is that we have enlarged the zone of consideration because we want to get a coach, who is competent to train the team for the world cup. Though the BCCI attempted to resolve the misunderstandings between the captain and me, it was apparent that the partnership was untenable, and therefore believe it is best for me to move on", he added. This is generally a sure sign that the captain is following someone else's plan and that he (the skipper) is the wrong man for the job.

Chappell said India is blessed to have Ajinkya Rahane in their ranks as he is a good leader too.

India's opponents in the final, Pakistan, were unusually free of any controversies during the tournament. Obviously more cricketing nations are coming. Kumble, India's greatest match-winner by a distance, commands huge respect, and the manner of his departure prompted much talk of an immature captain wanting only a yes-man around. But if Kohli is more anxious about having things his own way than finding a way to work together and win matches, India will continue to produce inconsistent results. "The void, there is definitely a bit of lacuna but the experience that this team possesses - when you have a Mahendra Singh Dhoni, a Yuvraj Singh and Virat Kohli, who've played close to 700 worldwide games, they're doing a lot of work behind the scenes, they are guiding the players".
