Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) President and a member of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), Sourav Ganguly refused to comment on Anil Kumble’s ‘untenable’ remark in his resignation letter. He later affirmed that the decision to resign from the post solely lies on Anil Kumble and didn’t want to get involved in the matter.

Much has been talked about rifts between Anil Kumble and Virat Kohli in the Indian dressing room prior to the start of the recently concluded Champions Trophy. All speculations came into being once Kumble decided to call it quits as he tweeted his resignation letter. The letter made it clear that Virat Kohli did not want Kumble to continue as the coach because the former had ‘reservations’ about the latter.


Virat Kohli came out all guns blazing in the recent press conference, claiming that the sanctity of the dressing room remains premium, and he wouldn’t want to reveal much about what happens within the room. Ganguly, who now has the job to elect the new coach, too seconded Kohli on that regard and said he wouldn’t want to comment on the issue.

“They are senior people, both of them have played enough cricket. We don’t deal with all that. It’s between them, I don’t know what happened. I am not part of the dressing room. All I know is that he didn’t want to continue and we will have to see what’s the way forward,” claimed Sourav Ganguly according to Indian Express. “It’s a tough question for me to answer. As I said it’s Anil’s decision. I don’t know the details. I don’t whether Virat asked him to leave. I cannot say anything more about it.” he further added.

When asked about his plans regarding the election of new coach he said,”I’m going to Mumbai on Monday. The team is playing now. So there would be too many things. I don’t whether they have extended the time limit or not. Let’s see,” concluded Dada.
