Kumble likely to remain coach for Windies tour

first_imgTHE BCCI is likely to retain Anil Kumble as coach for India’s tour of the West Indies immediately after the ongoing Champions Trophy. Kumble will be given the contract extension if the cricket advisory committee (CAC) fails to pick India’s next coach before then.The decision was taken by the Committee of Administrators (CoA), after consulting BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary and chief executive officer Rahul Johri yesterday.“In case there is a delay in taking a decision (by the CAC) we will request Anil Kumble to cover the West Indies tour also,” Vinod Rai, the CoA chairman, told ESPNcricinfo. Rai said the BCCI would check whether Kumble was “happy” to continue until the West Indies tour, which starts on June 23. India are scheduled to travel to the Caribbean from London on June 22, for five ODIs and one T20 international.Kumble was appointed India coach in June last year and was given a one-year contract, which ends after the Champions Trophy. Last month, the BCCI decided to invite fresh applications for the position after being made aware of the players’ reported unhappiness with Kumble’s man-management skills.Kumble was on the shortlist of six candidates and remained the first choice of the CAC, which comprises Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS LaxmanThough the BCCI was in favour of appointing the new coach on a two-year contract until the 2019 World Cup, the CAC said that it did not want to take a hasty decision. The CAC’s first option, as previously reported, was to try and patch up differences between the India captain Virat Kohli and Kumble. (ESPN Cricinfo)last_img read more
