Reportedly, Virat Kohli met the Cricket Advisory Committee members Laxman, Ganguly and Tendulkar, ahead of the finals to convey his 'strong reservations' about Anil Kumble continuing as the Indian coach.
Kumble was supposed to accompany the team to West Indies this week.

Anil Kumble steps down as Indian cricket team's coach
On 20th June, Anil Kumble decided to step down from the post of Team India's coach after holding the position for a year.

This comes after the reports of 10 Indian players putting forward their reservation on Kumble continuing as the coach.

While it is important that the skipper and the coach should be on the same page, another question which arises is how much say the captain should have in the selection process.
