Captain Virat Kohli has denied reports of a rift with coach Anil Kumble as India prepare to face Pakistan in their Champions Trophy opener on Sunday.

It comes after India’s cricket board invited applications for the head coach’s role last week, despite the team’s excellent results.

But Kohli said the board’s invitation for applications was a routine matter.
