New Delhi. Team India coach Ravi Shastri’s tenure is ending after the T20 World Cup 2021. In such a situation, the BCCI is busy looking for a new coach. Former captain and coach Anil Kumble was also being told in the race for a new coach, but he could not impress most of the board members. In such a situation, after the World Cup that ends on November 14, the team can once again get a foreign coach.
According to news agency IANS, Anil Kumble himself is not too keen on coaching. A board source said, “Anil Kumble does not want to make a comeback and except BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, no other member is interested. The board is now looking for a foreign coach. The source said that Anil Kumble knows that he will have to work again with the old players of the team like Virat Kohli and others. So nothing new will happen to them. Ganguly suggested his name. But other board officials had disagreed on this.
His record with Punjab is not good
Anil Kumble is currently the coach of IPL team Punjab Kings. The source said that Anil Kumble’s coaching record has not been attractive. You can see what is happening with Punjab in IPL. VVS Laxman also finds it difficult to get this post. Although it is more than a month now. See what comes out. According to the information, batting coach Vikram Rathor can also apply for the coach.
Had a dispute with Kohli
Anil Kumble has previously been the coach of Team India. But in 2017 he resigned from his post after a dispute with captain Virat Kohli. This controversy came to the fore after the defeat in the final of the 2017 Champions Trophy. After this Ravi Shastri was given another chance. Foreign coaches have been lucky for Team India. The team won the T20 World Cup title under the coaching of Greg Chappell. Then when Team India became the champion in the 2011 ODI World Cup, then Gary Kirsten was the coach. At the time of the 2013 Champions Trophy, Duncan Fletcher was in command of the team, the team then also captured the trophy.
