The controversy revolving the unprecedented exit of ex Team India Head Coach Anil Kumble following the 2017 Champions Trophy received an entire new twist on Wednesday, over an year after the incident. A leaked email from former Indian Women’s team skipper and senior Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Diana Edulji over the selection of new coach for the Indian women’s cricket team has sparked fresh doubts in the cricketing fraternity regarding the truth of the matter.
Edulji has accused Kohli of sending repeated messages to BCCI CEO Rahul Johli which eventually led to the appointment of Ravi Shastri as the new Head Coach of the Indian men’s team. Despite Edulji’s email having originated from an entirely different issue altogether, the looks of it certainly do not look a bit promising for the Indian team skipper.

Edulji’s allegations have been raised from the point of view of the turmoil surrounding the Indian women’s cricket team, who are currently without a head coach since the controversial exit of Ramesh Powar, who was denied a contract extension following his feud with ODI captain Mithali Raj. Senior players Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana, however wanted Powar to continue and wrote emails to the BCCI, requesting his contract extension.
While the BCCI decided to appoint a three member selection committee comprising Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shanta Rangaswamy to interview the candidates applying for the post of the head coach of the Women’s team, Edulji wrote a series of emails to CoA Chairman Vinod Rai to immediately scrap the selection process. The former Women’ team skipper believes that senior players Harmanpreet and Smriti must be allowed to have a say on the coach, just like men’s team skipper Virat Kohli.

“In a democratic setup of COA only views of one person are considered and the views expressed by the other member (who was also appointed by the hon’ble SC along with you) don’t matter. There is no clarity on the previous procedure carried out. The Capt and vice Capt have requested their choice so why can’t we respect their choice for this tour till we get clarity on the committee. We can go ahead and continue with the same coach. The views of the 2 senior players must not be ignored,” Edulji’s email read as per Republic TV.  “Virat did not accede to Kumble continuing in spite of CAC saying so then why not these 2 players get what they feel is best for the team,” Edulji added.
“Yes — there were differences between Virat and Kumble. As a consequence of that Kumble stepped back. More importantly– the team did not send e-mails. The team must realise that that coaches are not decided on team votes. If it is a question of respecting opinions of senior players— why not respect the opinion of the senior most player– in fact the ODI captain of the team?” Rai wrote, in reply to Edulji’s email.

“I see nothing wrong in Women Cricketers writing emails reg the Coach. They were truthful in expressing their views unlike Virat who frequently sent sms’s to the CEO on which you acted and there was a change in the Coach. There also I had objected and my dissent is recorded when the timelines were extended for some one to apply as he didn’t apply in time. Mr. Kumble a legend in his own right was subjected to loss of face and made to look like a villain, he was gracious enough to move on for which I respect him. There also rules were broken and I had raised objections back then,” Edulji reverted back saying.
“We can’t extend uncertainty. Our men’s team is doing so well with all the confusion far behind them. We have to support the women’s team with the best. They deserve it. We must have a vision 2020 for the world cup in place and have the team work towards it,” wrote the COA chief while requesting Edulji to “go along with this long term planning.”
