Mumbai, June 23 (IBNS): The BCCI on Thursday announced the appointment of Anil Kumble as the head coach of the Indian cricket team.
He has been appointed for the period of one year.
 
"Given to his immense knowledge and experience, the BCCI is confident that Mr. Kumble will take Indian cricket forward and contribute to its growth and success," a BCCI statement said.

On being appointed as the head coach, the veteran crickter told mediapersons: "It's great honour to be back In Indian dressing room. It's a huge responsibility." 
 
He said, "I now have a great relationship with Sourav, Sachin, Laxman and Dravid. Have to sit with them to discuss plans."
 
Kumble’s first assignment will be the upcoming away series in the West Indies, where India will play four Test matches.
 
As part of the process for selecting the head coach, the Board received 57 applications, which were evaluated by the Cricket Advisory Committee comprising  Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly with Sanjay Jagdale, the Chief Co-Coordinator.

"The Board recognizes the contribution of Team Director Ravi Shastri under whom India marched to the semi-finals in the ICC World Cup held in Australia and the ICC World T20 India 2016. With him as Team Director, India won the Test series in Sri Lanka after a gap of 22 years and also outplayed South Africa 3-0 in a four-Test home series before clinching the Asia Cup," the BCCI statement said.
