After the resignation of head coach Anil Kumble in the most unfortunate manner, many fans have expressed their displeasure towards captain Virat Kohli. There were disputes between the coach and captain, but nobody expected such a deadly fall-out which led to the ouster of Kumble. And fans blamed the skipper for the tussle which eventually led to the coach’s outster.
Couple it with India’s failure to defend the ICC Champions Trophy, losing to arch-rivals Pakistan in the final, then fans got more angry to call for a change in the guard, starting with the captain.
Immediately after Kumble tendered his resignation, fans took to various social media platforms calling Kohli’s head, and demanding the return of Dhoni as the captain of India.
Few tweets regarding the demand to change the captain –
Can Someone Please Review Anil Kumble's Resignation And Bring MS #Dhoni Back As Captain Instead? 😢

@lCC_CT17 captaincy is not anyone's job. Else Sachin would have been the permanent captain during his regime.Bring back "DHONI THE CAPTAIN".
