New Delhi, Dec 12 (IBNS) Former India captain Anil Kumble on Monday resigned as chairman of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) citing lack of "alignment" between his vision for the NCA and the rest of the committee's.
"I had a three-year vision, a holistic approach for the NCA that was not in alignment with that of the rest of the committee. It didn´t make sense to me to just be a figurehead in this kind of a situation. So I thought it was better that somebody else take over," Kumble was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.com.
The other members of the NCA Board are Ranjib Biswal (vice-chairman), Anirudh Chaudhry, TC Mathew, Rakesh Parikh and Gyanendra Pandey.
Some of the memebers of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) were opposed to Kumble´s conlict of interest in the role of a chairman of the NCA.
Kumble reportedly also had a severe argument with a senior boad official during Monday´s working committee meeting.
