Spin legend Anil Kumble stepped down as India's cricket coach on Tuesday, June 20, following differences with skipper Virat Kohli.

Kumble, who took over in June last year, decided not to renew his contract after he claimed that the 'partnership between him and captain Virat Kohli was untenable and hence it was best to move on'.

The legendary leg-spinner was one of India's most successful coaches with a win percentage of 70 in Tests and 61 in One-Day Internationals.

Rajneesh Gupta presents the numbers on Kumble's tenure:

  • Beat the West Indies 2-0 in the West Indies, July-August 2016.

India's showing under different coaches since 2000:

The coach's role assumed significane after John Wright became India's first overseas coach in 2000.

The New Zealander's stint spanned five years before he was replaced by Greg Chappell.

The Aussie batting legend lasted nearly two years before he was sacked after India's first round departure in the 2007 World Cup.
