BCCI says there is no fight between Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Indian cricket team has been making media coverage for wrong news for the past few days. The rumour that is getting more media attention is the conflict between Test skipper Virat Kohli and ODI skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. However, the Indian cricket board has denied it saying there is no rift between them.
This rumour of rift between two captains came after Kohli questioned some of Dhoni’s on-field decisions during the Bangladesh tour. After India’s 1-2 ODI series loss to Bangladesh earlier this month, Dhoni, in response to the question about his captaincy, said that he will be happy to step down from captaincy if that will improve things for the team.
However, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Anurag Thakur has changed the topic and said that the new advisory panel, which comprised of former Indian cricketers- Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and V.V.S. Laxman, is about to select the new head coach. Now they are short listing names for a future coach. It is expected that they will very soon announce the name of a new head coach.

When asked about the much speculated series between India and Pakistan at the end of the year, Thakur said that the discussion about the series will take place at a BCCI meet in July.
