Virat Kohli's childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma on Friday said the Indian cricket team won't be affected by the absence of Anil Kumble during the first one-day worldwide against the West Indies being played in Port Spain today. The CAC conveyed to the BCCI that, in the best interest of Indian cricket, the differences needed to be sorted out before moving forward. The former India legspinner, who had a very successful year with the Indian team, quit this week after a much talked-about rift between him and skipper Virat Kohli. "If we go by what Guha had written, what Anil had demanded is a clear case of "Conflict of Interest".
Kumble said there should be incentive for players and a World Cup win should fetch each players Rs 2 crore, while the success in the Champions Trophy and World Twnety20 should merit Rs 1crore each for a player. 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.
"I have total respect for him as a cricketer and what he has achieved [for the] nation", Kohli said.
