Kumble likely to remain coach for WI tour

Anil Kumble to continue as India coach Vinod Rai has assured

Anil Kumble to continue as India coach Vinod Rai has assured

The Committee of Administrators met in Delhi today to to discuss the issue and it was decided Kumble, who has had phenomenal success in his one-year stint, will be India coach for the upcoming start of the tour of West Indies which starts immediately after the conclusion of the ongoing Champions Trophy.

"The fact is that it was a one-year contract, so a process was followed". He has further clarified that Kumble will continue for the West Indies series but it is subject to acceptance by the former Indian leg-spinner. India will play five ODIs and a T20 game between June 23 to July 9 in the Caribbean.

When The Indian Express had contacted a BCCI official he had said, "BCCI president CK Khanna has suggested that as Champions Trophy is still on, it will be not feasible to take a decision on Indian team coach now".

The CAC - comprising Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly - is now in London and is in touch with both the captain and the coach on the sidelines of the ongoing Champions Trophy.

Sources told TOI that the three legendary stars, members of the board's cricket advisory committee (CAC), have asked both Kohli and Kumble to soften their stands and bury their differences to ensure a congenial atmosphere in the Indian dressing room. Kumble will be given the contract extension if the cricket advisory committee (CAC) fails to pick India's next coach before then. The trio were supposed to speak with Kumble and captain Virat Kohli to sort out any issues between them. Being asked to send in a fresh application for the coach's job, on a technicality, has left Kumble disappointed. One of its high-profile members, historian Ramachandra Guha, resigned earlier this month, citing the committee's mishandling of the Kumble situation. Last month, the BCCI chose to invite fresh applications for the position after being made aware of the players' reported unhappiness with Kumble's man-management skills.

But BCCI official Vinod Rai said a special panel overseeing the selection was yet to decide if someone else will take the reins.
