Kumble named as new India coach

India have appointed former captain and leg spinner Anil Kumble as their new head coach on a one-year deal. Kumble, 45, has no international or first-class coaching experience but is India’s leading Test wicket taker with 619 wickets in 132 games.

India have been without a head coach since Duncan Fletcher left the role after the 2015 World Cup. Former team director Ravi Shastri has overseen India’s recent World Twenty20 and Asia Cup campaigns. Kumble previously served as the cricket committee chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC) from 2012 to 2016 after retiring from cricket.
