Former Indian captain, Anil Kumble turned former Indian coach as he stepped down from his position on Tuesday, his last day at the office as per the initial agreement unless as an extension. India, under Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni (two series), had achieved a lot of success with Kumble as the coach in the last one year.

During his tenure the team achieved tremendous success in Test cricket and towards the end, almost won the Champions Trophy. Among the individuals who took up the Indian head coach’s role since 2000, Kumble’s record is by far the best in terms of results in the longer format of the game.
