Port of Spain (Trinidad): The Indian cricket team arrived for a limited-overs series against the West Indies amid the off-field drama surrounding Anil Kumble‘s resignation as head coach following a rift with captain Virat Kohli. The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) posted a photo of Kohli and opposition captain Jason Holder at the team hotel. India, who lost to Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday, start favourites for the series comprising five ODIs and a T20 International. The series-opener will be played here on Friday. While Kumble has given his side of the story, Kohli is yet to speak about the differences with the former Indian spinner, who stepped down yesterday as the team boarded the flight to the Caribbean from London.

Batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar have travelled with the team to the West Indies. West Indies, currently ninth in the ODI rankings, failed to qualify for the Champions Trophy where the top eight teams battled it out for top honours. India had toured the West Indies last year for a four- match Test series which the visitors won 2-0. It was Kumble’s first assignment after taking charge as head coach.

 

BCCI top brass had an inkling that all was not well but they were taken aback when they came to know that captain Virat Kohli and chief coach Anil Kumble were not in talking terms for the last six months . Another important thing that has come out in the open was that the Chief Advisory Committee, comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, also didn t straightaway give the green light to Kumble s extension.
