Putting an end to all the drama and speculation, Anil Kumble is set to stay on as India’s coach for the upcoming series against West Indies, reportedly claimed Committee of Administrators chief Vinod Rai.
However, the decision is yet to be finalized as this is subject to the acceptance of the former legspinner.
The news first broke out through a report on the Press Trust of India (PTI).
To be noted, Kumble’s tenure as India’s head coach was set to end following the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy 2017, after having been appointed on a one-year basis last year.
Meanwhile, the Cricket Advisory Committee of BCCI – comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman met on June 8 in London and had a two-hour long discussion on the issue, but then informed BCCI CEO Rahul Johri that they would need more time.
BCCI secretary Amitabh Chaudhary stated in a press release: “The Cricket Advisory Committee of the BCCI met today and discussed the process with regard to the selection of the Head coach of the Senior India Men team and it was decided by the CAC to revert to the BCCI, at an appropriate time.”
