Anil Kumble stepped down from the head coach’s position and the decision didn’t really come as a surprise to many as there was plenty of chatter about the tension in the Indian dressing room. Moreover, a post from Kumble on his social media handles made it clear that things were not going well between present skipper Virat Kohli and Kumble.

Kumble’s tenure ended with the conclusion of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 but he was given an option of continuing with the job for India’s tour of West Indies. The coach chose and the the team is currently in West Indies for five ODIs and only T20I, without a head coach.
