Spin legend Anil Kumble has said goodbye to Mumbai Indians but rubbished reports which claimed he had stepped down as the chief mentor of the Mumbai Indians due to a conflict of interest angle.
What the actual story is?
Kumble was associated with the Indian Premier League franchise since January 2013. According to him, he has stepped down because he has decided to pursue other opportunities in sports and cricket. His decision was a considered as a step which is followed after a BCCI crackdown on conflict of interest in the board.
