Coach - Indian Cricket Team
Current Head Coach, and former captain, of the Indian Cricket Team; the third highest wicket taker in Test cricket; and the highest wicket-taker for India in One-day internationals, Padmashri Anil Kumble is among the most respected Indian sporting icons.
His contribution to Indian cricket for 18 years has resulted in helping India win a record number of matches and his bowling prowess has led him to claim virtually every notable Indian bowling record.
Post retirement from cricket, Kumble has actively been involved in leadership roles – having served as the President of the Karnataka State Cricket Association; mentoring the Mumbai Indians to an IPL and Champions League Title; and currently serving as the Chairman of the Cricket Committee at ICC.
Kumble’s leadership qualities, administrative excellence and corporate acumen have also made him an astute entrepreneur – with his venture, TENVIC, boasting of more than 25000 children participating in different sports programs across schools in India.
Beyond sports, Anil is very passionate about wildlife conservation and photography, and has served as the Vice-Chairman of the Karnataka State Board for Wildlife.
A highly-regarded thought leader, Kumble understands the dynamics of becoming a champion. Drawing from his experiences, he consistently inspires, motivates and entertains audiences.
