Kumble in June this year resigned from team India’s head coach post after reports of his alleged rift with the Indian captain Virat Kohli. Sehwag was one of the candidates who applied for the coach’s post after Kumble resignation. However, it was Ravi Shastri who was handed the responsibility.
Recently, Sehwag stirred a controversy when he said on TV that because of lack of “setting’’ he was not appointed as coach. However, later he clarified that it was all in fun.
