Kumble set to remain India coach for Windies tour
Anil Kumble's term as India coach looks set to be extended until the end of the West Indies tour next month, a top official said Monday.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) advertised for a head coach in May with Kumble's one-year deal due to expire at the end of the Champions Trophy in England this week.
The first one-day international in the West Indies just 10 days away with Kumble in the mix for the post along with former India opening batsman Virender Sehwag and Australian coach Tom Moody, according to media reports.
But BCCI official Vinod Rai said a special panel overseeing the selection was yet to decide if someone else will take the reins.
"Since it has got delayed, Anil Kumble, subject to his acceptance, will be there till the West Indies tour," Rai, who is chairman of the Committee of Administrators, told reporters on Monday.
