Kings XI Punjab ropes in Anil Kumble as head coach for IPL 2020
 
New Delhi: Former Indian captain Anil Kumble has been appointed as the head coach of Kings XI Punjab for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Anil Kumble, India''s leading wicket-taker in Tests, was appointed as coach after the franchise''s board meeting on Thursday. After his appointment, Kumble becomes the only Indian head coach in the IPL 2020. 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.

The legendary leg-spinner''s first assignment as head coach of KXIP will be at IPL auction, scheduled for December 19 in Kolkata. Anil Kumble had previously been the chief mentor of Mumbai Indians. He was appointed in the role in 2013 and the MI went on to win their maiden IPL title in that year. Kumble had left a similar role at Royal Challengers Bangalore to join the 4-time champions in that year. In June 2016, he was appointed as the head coach of the Indian men''s team by BCCI for a period of one year but resigned due to "untenable" differences with captain Virat Kohli.
