    I think the Board should take Professional help to bury the differences.Coach record is Good and he would have India Interest in mind keeping in mind that he has represented India with a Fantastic record.If India keeps winning then Public will be behind them. If they want someone as coach he should give results better than Anil kumble. Otherwise coach should not be appointed.Like in Austarlia and England Senior Indian Players should be Judged on Performances
