Industrialist Harsh Goenka has criticised Indian skipper Virat Kohli via a sarcastic tweet wherein he mentioned obeying the captain as one of the required qualifications for being the Indian coach. Goenka had earlier made headlines for his controversial comments about MS Dhoni during IPL 2017.
Anil Kumble stepped down as the Indian coach and cited his 'untenable' relationship with Indian skipper Virat Kohli as the reason for doing so. Following the incident, many ex-cricketers have criticised Kohli for his rift with Kumble that led the former coach's departure.
And now, Harsh Goenka, chairman of RPG Enterprises and the brother of Sanjiv Goenka who owned the Rising Pune Supergiant, has taken to Twitter to express his views on the Kumble-Kohli saga with the following tweet:
Pl apply for Indian cricket coach. Qualifications:— Harsh Goenka (@hvgoenka) June 27, 2017
Organise travel schedule
Fix hotel rooms
Be obedient to BCCI and Indian cricket captain.
The industrialist had earlier grabbed headlines during IPL 2017 when he had criticised MS Dhoni's batting skills and also hailed Steve Smith's promotion as Rising Pune Supergiant's captain. Goenka's comments did not go down well with Dhoni's fans, as he received a severe backlash for them on the micro-blogging website.
However, this time around, Goenka's views seem to have found a few supporters with a lot more people seconding his opinion, as seen below:

"Qualifications" can be anything. You probably mean "responsibilities"?— Rajesh R (@talent_class) June 27, 2017
