Ashwin was the skipper of Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2018 and 2019.
Kumble will now give the presentation to the management on October 19 where the final decision on Ashwin's retention is also expected to be taken.
He was bought by KXIP for INR 7.6 Cr back in 2018.
Kings XI Punjab might retain Ravichandran Ashwin if Anil Kumble takes the head coach's job.
Ashwin will represent his fourth team in IPL if the deal goes through.
Among the shortlisted candidates, Hussey is definitely the most experienced with IPL.
He also committed that he will not be taking the coaching roles outside India.
"I was actually good in academics," said Murugan Ashwin.
It seems that the Delhi based franchise sees Ashwin as a replacement to their ace spinner Amit Mishra, who at 36 is past his prime.
Teams will be reviewing their previous season, captains, players, and support staff.
