BCCI exploring ways to bring back Anil Kumble for Team India’s head coach role

The odds are stacking up against Virat Kohli, who recently announced his decision to step down as India captain from the shortest format after the upcoming T20 World Cup in UAE.

With the tenures of head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar also coming to an end, the BCCI is looking to bring back Anil Kumble in the hot seat.

Kumble did a fantastic job in his first stint as Team India’s head coach and it now depends on him to come on board a second time before such a move sees the light of the day.

“While the process will once again be a transparent one, it is no secret that Kumble did a good job with the team. What led to the differences four years back doesn’t concern anyone now as everyone has moved ahead. While he would definitely be a good option, it needs to be seen whether he himself agrees to come on board a second time. So his nod would also matter. But yes, he is definitely someone who can take the team forward,” a BCCI source close to the developments was quoted as saying to ANI.

Meanwhile, as per a report in the Indian Express, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly wanted Kumble to continue coaching the team even after the 2017 Champions Trophy, despite Kohli being against the idea, and now he is keen for Jumbo to replace Shastri.

Kumble, one of the most respected figures in Indian cricket, will have to leave his job as the head coach of IPL franchise Punjab Kings (PBKS) and also resign from the post of the head of the International Cricket Council’s cricket committee if he is to replace Shastri.

Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen predicts the winner of IPL 2021

The much-anticipated second leg of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 is all set to begin from September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The opening game of the second phase will be played between reigning champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and three-time IPL winners Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Dubai.

As the cash-rich league is approaching, many experts of the fascinating game have started giving their analysis concerning teams and players who will shine in the fourteenth season. Following the bandwagon, former England captain Kevin Pietersen has predicted the winner of IPL 2021.

Pietersen picked MS Dhoni-led CSK as his choice while admitting that he was taken aback by the Super Kings’ performance in the first half of the lucrative league.

Notably, CSK were at the second spot of the eight-team points table with seven triumphs in 10 matches before the season was suspended in the first week of May earlier this year.

Pietersen asserted that people dint have high expectations from CSK when the fourteenth season started, but players like Moeen Ali, Faf du Plessis, and Sam Curran performed well to keep their side in the top-4.

“Everybody wrote off the old boys’ army of CSK before the IPL started in April, so seeing them go so well was a bit of a surprise. Their overseas players Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali and Sam Curran, in particular, delivered the goods. But I’m not sure how well this four-month absence will have suited them,” Pietersen told Betway.

The cricketer-turned-commentator said that the Super Kings have a ‘fantastic shot’ at winning the title for the fourth occasion.

“It could take them a little while to crank back into gear, particularly the older players. If they are ready, it could be a historic few weeks for the franchise. They have a fantastic shot at winning a title that everybody thought was beyond them,” Pietersen added.
