Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, spoke to the press ahead of his team’s departure to England. India will be looking to defend their Champions Trophy, as they aim to be the first team in history to achieve this goal. Kohli spoke on a variety of topics, including the latest news surrounding the position of the head coach of the Indian team. Virat Kohli talks about Anil Kumble’s role as the head coach, as he gives his opinion on the matter.
The BCCI has invited applicants for the role of the head coach of the Indian team. Being the current head coach, Kumble has been given a spot on the eventual shortlist. This gives him a chance to make a case for him to continue in this role.

This is what Kohli had to say on the matter,
“The process has been followed every single time the similar way and for the past so many years is what I know. Even the last time, the post was up for a change, the same procedure was applied. And the term being one year, obviously the procedure is being followed in the same manner,” Kohli said
“So I don’t see anything very different from what has happened in the past. And that’s something that the board has obviously recognized. And they want to follow the same patterns.
“So, yeah, I literally don’t have any more information on it because there is a committee that takes those decisions, and they’re following the same pattern that’s been followed in the past as well,” the skipper remained guarded in his response.
“Obviously, when you have results come your way, the contribution is from every part of the team. It’s not from a single source, to say the least. Everyone works hard equally, if not more than the other person,” the skipper said.
Kumble’s contract will run out at the end of the Champions Trophy. The new head coach will be a joint decision taken by the Committee of Administrators and the Advisory Committee.
