Anil Kumble steps down - It is the begining of ending of 'Arrogant Selfish Manipulative Over Rated Virat Kohli' down fall !

Date: June 21st, 2017

See... the title of this blog... is the result of my emotional outburst as hard core cricket fan for decades !
(Note: my english is not perfect, but my emptional burst need some writing for my satisfaction... so I am writing this blog.)

Indian Cricket team captain - why only Virat Kohli... What happened to other players... such as Ajinkya Rahane and others ?
Virat Kohli as Indian captain ? ... a bully, joker in the field, over reacting, making too many unwanted noise - this person Indian Captain ?

I don't think Virat Kohli deserves what he got today. Media hype, Legends like Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Saurav Ganguly retired. Dhoni performance as a batsman not good for the past 2 years... that created opportunity for Virat Kohli to politically manipulate and become obvious choice for captain of Indian cricket team.
Without MS Dhoni's inputs and support... Kohli's success as captain is NOTHING !
BCCI support to Virat Kohli against Kumble ! Is it required... ? (or) BCCI is in thought process about - what to do with this Arrogant Virat Kohli ?

We all still remember how Kumble gained media respect in Australia during controversial tour of Australia. His capabilities... as captain, as player, as patriot, as a team member... the integrity he brings... no one can question it... period. The following is the content of resignation letter from Kumble:

I am honoured by the confidence reposed in my by the CAC, in asking me to continue as Head Coach. The credit for the achievements of the last one year goes to the captain, the entire team, coaching and support staff.

Post this intimation, I was informed for the first time yesterday by the BCCI that the Captain had reservations with my 'style' and about my continuing as the Head Coach. I was surprised since I had always respected the role boundaries between Captain and Coach. Though the BCCI attempted to resolve the misunderstandings between the Captain and me, it was apparent that the partnership was untenable, and I therefore believe it is best for me to move on.

Professionalism, discipline, commitment, honesty, complementary skills and diverse views are the key traits I bring to the table. These need to be valued for the partnership to be effective. I see the Coach's role akin to 'holding a mirror' to drive self-improvement in the team's interest.

In light of these 'reservations', I believe it is best I hand over this responsibility to whomever the CAC and BCCI deem fit.

Let me reiterate that it has been an absolutely privilege to have served as Head Coach for the last one year. I thank the CAC, BCCI, CoA and all concerned.

I also wish to thank the innumerable followers and fans of Indian cricket for their continued support. I will remain a well-wisher of the great cricketing tradition of my country forever.

For me... the above is not the resignation letter ! It is a WARNING about the FUTURE OF INDIAN CRICKET !
Some worst things for Indian Cricket are inline...
How can Virat Kohli decides starting from selection of Indian cricket team... to... who can be the coach for Indian Team ?

Kumble asking Hardik Pandya to go before MS Dhoni to bat in one of the ICC champions trophy matches is the analytical ability of Kumble to understand the situation in hand and plan accordingly.

Asking Kedar Jhadav to bowl in 39th over instead of asking him to bowl between 15th and 25th overs is LACK OF COMMONSENSE that Virat Kohli retains FOREVER. How can this Arrogant Senseless Captain lead India in to World Cup 2019 ???
