Kumble was appointed as the head coach of the national side by the CAC which comprises of former cricketers Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, last year.

However, the former Mumbai batsman empathised with Kumble's decision saying, 'Anil must have had his reasons (of resigning).

Virat Kohli had the final say in the captain-coach row between him and Anil Kumble.

Almost one year after being appointed as the coach of the side, Kumble chose to step down from the post shortly after India's Champions Trophy 2017 campaign which saw them finish as the runners-up to arch-rivals Pakistan in a one-sided final.

Kohli was speaking at a press conference ahead of the first one day global against West Indies on Friday.

The CAC will now have to review applications to pick a new coach for India. "I have total respect for him as a cricketer and what he has achieved for the nation".

"We have created a culture over the last 3-4 years that whatever happens in the change room, we've tried to maintain the sanctity of the change room throughout", the 28-year-old captain said. Kumble on Tuesday refused extension of his contract till the West Indies tour, citing captain Virat Kohli's reservation over his "style" of functioning.

He added even though BCCI tries to resolve the misunderstandings between him and captain their partnership will be untenable.

Later, the concerned media authorities went questioning about Kumble's contribution to Team India's progress in past one year, and all Kohli did is staying calm. "The assignment of the new head coach will be till the next World Cup to be held in June 2019 in England", said BCCI acting president CK Khanna.

Kumble, who was given a one-year tenure, quit from his position as the head coach after the final of the Champions Trophy. However, as reported by PTI, a senior BCCI official working close to the development has divulged that another 7-10 days may be given for fresh applications so that other interested candidates with suitable qualification and stature can apply for the job.
