India captain Virat Kohli is one of the most successful cricketers of the current generation. On the occasion of Teachers Day, the Indian skipper took to Twitter and paid tributes to the people who played a vital role in his meteoric rise. "To all the teachers around the world and especially to the ones in the Cricket World. ???? #HappyTeachersDay," Kohli's tweet read.

But that didn't go well with some of his fans and the Indian skipper was trolled on Twitter.

This came just after Kohli shared a picture where he is seen in front of a backdrop which had the names of several legendary cricketers. Kohli mentioned the names as inspirations for him.

But there was one name which was missing from the backdrop - Anil Kumble.

When fans noticed Kumble's name missing, they started trolling the Indian captain on missing out on the legendary leg-spinner and former coach.

Kumble had controversially quit two days after the Champions Trophy final loss to Pakistan in London in June, calling his partnership with Kohli 'untenable'.

Ravi Shastri, whom Kumble had replaced, was called back to the national team as the new head coach till the 2019 World Cup.

Kohli and the team did well under Kumble, winning Test series in the West Indies (2-0) before winning at home against New Zealand (3-0), England (4-0), Bangladesh (1-0) and Australia (2-1). They also won eight ODIs and lost five during the 46-year-old's tenure.
