#1 Leaked email suggest Kohli's hand in Kumble's exit

Can of worms, opened again

Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble's public spat was the headline of every cricket daily for a good chunk of last year. As a unit, they gave India exceptional results, but issues between the coach and captain turned from crack to crevasse, ultimately leading to Kumble's exit.

A new leaked email, from CoA's Diana Edulji to co-member Vinod Rai reveals that Kohli had a big hand to play in pushing Kumble out. The mail went on to state that Kohli, unhappy with Kumble, even sent out messages to BCCI's CEO.

"Virat did not accede to Kumble continuing in spite of CAC saying so then why not these two players get what they feel is best for the team. They were truthful in expressing their views, unlike Virat who frequently sent SMS's to the CEO on which you acted and there was a change in the Coach", Edulji's mail read.
