Kumble replaces Mike Hesson in the role

Anil Kumble has been appointed as the head coach of Kings XI Punjab in the IPL from the upcoming season, while also being put in charge of "all cricket-related affairs" of the team for the foreseeable future, co-owner of the franchise Mohit Burman has confirmed.

Kumble is also expected to be in charge of choosing the new captain for the franchise in Ashwin's absence.

Quashing all the rumors of Ravichandran Ashwin's potential move to Delhi Capitals, the co-owner of Kings XI Punjab, Ness Wadia, has confirmed that Ashwin will remain a vital member of the side in IPL 2020. Amongst the support staff, which has been hired in consultation with Kumble, former Australian limited overs captain George Bailey is the new batting coach of the team.

Former India spinner Sunil Joshi and Kumble's longtime national and state teammate will be the assistant coach of the Punjab franchise.

"Kumble will decide who all players will stay and who all will be released". The appointment makes Kumble the only Indian coach in the IPL. He is an exceptional player and is not only an asset for the Indian team, but also for Kings XI Punjab. He was involved as a player and captain with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) before joining the team as a mentor later on. He then joined the Indian team as the chief coach but it ended acrimoniously in 2017 after his relationship with skipper Virat Kohli became "untenable".

Nearly a couple of years after signing off as the Team India coach in acrimonious circumstances following a rift with skipper Virat Kohli - India's leg-spin great Anil Kumble is set to return to coaching. As per reports in TOI, Jonty Rhodes and Courtney Walsh are likely to take up the role of the fielding and bowling coach respectively. "Kumble has worked with two franchises in the past and is record has been phenomenal". They reached the finals in 2014 but lost it to Kolkata Knight Riders despite a spectacular hundred from Wriddhiman Saha.

It will be a valuable addition to the side who are yet to win the IPL trophy.
