Kohli denied reports of a rift with Kumble, who proceeded to step down as head coach after a year in charge, because his "partnership" with the captain was "untenable". In his statement of resignation, Kumble said that the BCCI had "attempted to resolve the misunderstandings" but felt it was "best to move on".
