Anil Kumble as head coach?: The last couple of days have seen the Indian cricket team undergoing some major changes. On Thursday, a week after former Indian skipper MS Dhoni was named as the mentor of the Indian cricket team for the T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli announced that he will step down from the position of the T20 captaincy after the tournament. But seems like there could be more in store for the team.

Just days after these big announcements, the BCCI is reportedly eyeing the return of former Indian cricketer Anil Kumble as the head coach of the Indian cricket team after the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021.

Meanwhile, Anil Kumble isn’t the only one in contention for the coveted but high-pressure job. As per a report by The Indian Express, Sri Lankan batting great Mahela Jayawardene, who is also the head coach of Mumbai Indians, was also approached by the Indian board. However, Jayawardene said that he would be more interested in coaching the Sri Lankan team. Besides him, BCCI has also approached VVS Laxman for the job, as per a report by the Times of India.
