Former captain Anil Kumble will be India’s head coach for the next year, the country’s cricket board (BCCI) said on Thursday, as they put their faith in the 45-year-old despite his lack of experience.

Kumble, whose only coaching experience has been as mentor of the Mumbai and Bangalore teams in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament, will take over before the team’s tour of the West Indies next month.

“After discussions with various stakeholders we have taken the final call that for next one year Anil Kumble will be the head coach,” BCCI President Anurag Thakur told reporters in Dharamsala.
