Harbhajan Singh has come out in support of his Anil Kumble saying that Kumble didn't fight with anyone during their days of playing together. The off-spinner also said that communication between Virat Kohli and Kumble is the key to solving any issue that may exist between the pair.
In the aftermath of these reports, Harbhajan Singh has come out in support of his former teammate Anil Kumble, saying, "In my 15 years of playing with him, there has been no instance of any fight with him and he's the best bowling mind in cricket, he's always there to help", as reported by TOI.
Kumble and Harbhajan were an important part of the Indian bowling attack for a long time and the 'Turbnaotor'
Harbhajan also spoke about Kumble 's love for the game saying, “He's very hard working and believes that one shouldn't leave the match till the last ball. He's strict but he responds to hard work more than just talent. As a coach, I am sure he's going to bring a lot of good to Indian cricket. One can also see his results of last year."
According to the sources, in the last Test against Australia in Dharamshala, which India won, Kumble had strongly backed the inclusion of chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav in place of the injured Kohli. But Kohli was unaware it and the decision caught the skipper by surprise.
On the basis of his own experience with Kumble, the off-spinner is upset after hearing Kumble’s name in such a matter. "I am not a part of this team so I don't know how Anil Bhai is running the team and I don't talk to players about what is going on and all.”
"If someone has issues with Kumble, he should go and talk to him because he's a person of respect and as per my experience, he can't have issues with anyone.
Finally, Bhajji suggested that Kumble and Kohli should take the issue over. "Conversation is the key to solving the issue if there's any. He's someone who's at the top and there's no one who can fill his shoes easily".
