Kohli unreasonable target in Kumble controversy: Thakur
Virat Kohli is being "unreasonably targetted" for Anil Kumble's resignation as India's chief cricket coach, feels former BCCI President Anurag Thakur, who said the current Board set-up should answer for the unsavoury episode. Kumble stepped down at the end of the Champions Trophy earlier this month after acknowledging a rift with skipper Kohli, who has refused to divulge just what led to the fallout.
"Virat is being unreasonably targetted, I think this discussion should stop. Virat has the ability to take Indian cricket to new heights in the next 10 years. This is not the first time that a cricketer is being targetted. In the past too, captains and former captains have been targetted," Thakur said. Thakur had to quit as Board President after being ordered by the Supreme Court. He said BCCI under him would have handled the situation better.
