Former Indian skipper Anil Kumble has been appointed as the head coach of Kings XI Punjab for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

According to a report in ESPNcricinfo, Kumble will also be put in charge of “all cricket-related affairs” of the team for the foreseeable future. With the signing, Kumble becomes the only Indian coach in the IPL.

The report further stated that Kumble would make a presentation to the team management on his plans for the road ahead on October 19.

Kumble, who is India’s highest wicket-taker in Test cricket, will be replacing Mike Hesson who in August parted ways with the Punjab-based franchise after one season at helm with them.Even though Hesson had signed a two-year contract, the 44-year-old left the role midway with the Punjab-based franchise, who finished sixth in this year’s edition.
