New Delhi: A day after Anil Kumble stepped down as the Indian cricket team’s head coach, Board of Control for Cricket in India acting president C.K. Khanna on Wednesday hoped that the former cricketer continues his association with Indian cricket in any way possible.

Heaping praise on Kumble, Khanna insisted that the Indian team performed extremely well under the former and the evidence of same could be given with the fact that the Virat Kohli-led side achieved no.1 Test rankings under him.

“We hope that he will be connected to Indian cricket in any way possible. I wish him all the very best for his future assignments,” Khanna said.

The BCCI acting president also confirmed that the Cricket Advisory Committee, comprising former cricketers, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and V.V.S. Laxman, are in constant contact with each other over the appointment of a new coach.

“The CAC members are in constant touch with each other, As soon as they will recommend, BCCI will take the call. And the final call is of CAC only,” Khanna said.
