Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli said that he respects former Indian coach's decision to 'step out' and won't reveal dressing room details.

"I respect Kumble's decision to step out...I will never reveal dressing room details. I will always maintain sanctity of dressing room," Kohli said.

On Tuesday, Kumble stepped down from his position after a widely-speculated feud with Kohli, marking a bitter end to a highly successful tenure.

In an open statement following his resignation, Kumble said that the 'partnership between him and Kohli was untenable and hence it was best to move on'.

Kumble also revealed that he was informed by the BCCI on Monday that captain Kohli had reservations with his style.

" I was informed for the first time yesterday by the BCCI that the Captain had reservations with my 'style' and about my continuing as the Head Coach. I was surprised since I had always respected the role boundaries between Captain and Coach. Though the BCCI attempted to resolve the misunderstanding between the Captain and me, it was apparent that the partnership was untenable, and therefore believe it is best for me to move on," he further wrote in the statement.
