India's former bowler Anil Kumble had stepped down from the position of Team India's head coach earlier in June this year. After men-in-blue led by Virat Kohli lost the finale of ICC Champions Trophy finale to Pakistan.
The veteran Indian bowler turned 47th yesterday Twitter was flooded with his birthday wishes. Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) found themselves in the middle of controversy for describing Anil Kumble as just a 'former bowler' in its Tweet. However, the cricket board was quick in correcting its mistake replaced the post with 'record Test wicket-taker' after the fans of cricket took offence.
Not just Board of Control for Cricket in India but Indian skipper Virat Kohli also faces the anger of fans for not greeting legendary cricketer Anil Kumble on his birthday. It might be possible that the 28-year-old cricketer might have conveyed his wishes to former India bowler in more personal way. But still, the fans questioned the silence of Virat Kohli on social media.
So, Virat Kohli has the time and energy to wish and visit Arijit Singh, but he doesn't have the courtesy to wish Anil Kumble.— Nitin Naik (@toi_nitinnayak) October 17, 2017
