Twitter explodes as Kumble, Kohli get a 'Virushka' platform to bury hatchet Former Indian cricket team captain and coach Anil Kumble and his wife Chethana arrive for the wedding reception of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma in Mumbai on Tuesday. IANS

Former Indian cricket team captain and ex-coach Anil Kumble's presence was one of the surprises of the wedding reception of Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Kumble had a fallout with Kohli and quit as Indian coach after the ICC Champions Trophy in England in June. Kumble, who is India's highest wicket-taker in both Tests and One-Day Internationals, had cited untenable differences with Kohli before calling it quits ahead of the tour of West Indies.

Kumble had guided the team to series wins over the West Indies, New Zealand, England and Australia besides the runner-up finish in the Champions Trophy.

Ravi Shastri took over as Indian coach following Kumble's ouster. Interestingly, Kumble had played a key role in Kohli's development during his early days with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL.

Kumble being at Virushka's wedding reception along with his wife Chethana is a sign that the two fiercely motivated cricketers have buried the hatchet. The Twitterati went abuzz once Kumble was spotted at the function and here are a few interesting posts.
