BCCI wants the Next Coach to get along with Kohli

The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) comprising of Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, and VVS Laxman has made a decision to not consult the Indian captain Virat Kohli before appointing the new Indian coach. I have total respect for him as a cricketer and what he has achieved [for the] nation. Kohli has never publicly talked about his issues and grievances with Kumble and has said that they (team) respect Kumble as a player and also emphasised on dressing room sanctity and said that discussion within those four walls should remain private. "On the basis of 2015-16 BCCI income (Rs. 1300 crores) and assuming an average BCCI income of Rs. 1500 crores / year over the next 5 years, 13% of Gross Income is around Rs. 195 crores that is available for distribution among the global players".

"The advisory committee are adept at getting the right man but they would certainly have the Kumble episode at the back of their mind while selecting the new coach", a Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official told AFP on condition of anonymity. "Anil Bhai has expressed his views and he has taken a decision to step out and we all respect that decision".

"That is what the whole team believes in". We all respect that decision.

"I don't know why people keep confusing the idea that coaching a team and having been a good player are the same".

Titled "Restructuring of Remuneration And Contracts of Personnel Of The Indian Cricket Team", Kumble, on Page 12 of the document, proposed a hike for the support staff. For us that is paramount.

LG might launch its next LG V30 smartphone in September at IFA
A recent report mainly focusing on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 also revealed the LG V30 might be unveiled sometime in October. The phone will also pack one of LG's own OLED displays, a dual-camera setup, a new ESS Quad DAC and 3.5mm headphone jack.

Earlier Kumble said that Virat Kohli reserved about his coaching style and there partnership was untenable as he did not accompany the side in the ongoing tour to West Indies.

Kumble was asked to continue his coaching duties during the ongoing India-West Indies series but he refused the extension.

Unless they can upset the form book in five matches against India and a further five ODIs in England in September, the ninth-ranked West Indies also appear doomed to go through the qualifying tournament next year for the 2019 World Cup in England.

Things came to a head after India were thrashed - by Pakistan, no less - in the final of the Champions Trophy at The Oval.

The PTI has access to Kumble's presentation, which he submitted on Committee of Administrators' (COA) behest during the final of the IPL on May 21.
