Virat Kohli, Anil Kumble differ on pay hike matter, claims BCCI official
Virat Kohli, Anil Kumble differ on pay hike matter, claims BCCI official. Indian team coach Anil Kumble and skipper Kohli don't go hand in hand on the proposed pay hike issue for centrally contracted players. A senior BCCI official said, "Never would Virat Kohli be on the same page on the captain getting paid extra for discharging the captain’s responsibility. In fact, I have personally had a word with him once or twice and he has always said that every player’s interest should be taken care of, but especially those who play just one format should be priority.” He also said, "Actually Kumble wants to tag a few people just to strengthen his case. But his demand that the skipper be paid extra is mind-boggling". The BCCI has invited applications for the post of Team India coach.
