It was a subtle message to Kohli and Team India, as Kumble was often accused of being a strict headmaster who had a lot of rules.


According to these stars players even if the player dislikes the coach’s style of teaching, he should accept it and stick to the same. After all, the coach is always more experienced and has a better way of doing things.
