Champions Trophy 2017: Unfazed by roumoured rift, coach Anil Kumble gives Virat Kohli throwdowns
The rumoured captain-coach rift, the drama and intrigue seemed to have taken a backseat as Anil Kumble gave skipper Virat Kohli throwdowns during the Indian cricket team's indoor net session in Birmingham on Friday ahead of their Champions Trophy clash against arch-rivals Pakistan.
