“Anil bhai has expressed his views and he has taken a decision to step out and we all respect that decision. It’s something that has happened right after the tournament,” Kohli said from Trinidad in the pre-match press conference.

“One thing for sure is that I have had 11 press conferences that have happened during the Champions Trophy. We have created a culture over the last 3-4 years that whatever happens in the change room, we have tried to maintain the sanctity of the change room throughout. That is what the whole team believes in. For us that is paramount,” he further added.


“Like I said, for me what’s most important is to maintain the sanctity of the dressing-room and what happens in the change-room is something that’s very sacred and private to all of us.”

“… And something that I would not express in details in a public scenario. As I said, his point of view is out there and we respect that decision.”

We also have come to hear that the tweet on the welcome of Anil Kumble has been deleted by Virat Kohli.

“Heartiest welcome to @anilkumble1074 Sir. Look forward to your tenure with us. Great things in store for Indian Cricket with you 😊” Kohli had posted on his official Twitter account on June 23, 2016.

India face the West Indies in the first of the five ODIs on Friday. But the start of the series has been overshadowed by Kumble’s resignation and the reasons he gave for the decision.
