ICC Cricket Committee appointed Anil Kumble as the Chairman
Former India captain Anil Kumble was appointed chairman of ICC’s Cricket Committee by the game’s governing body. Kumble replaced West Indies great Clive Lloyd on Thursday.
He is the highest wicket-taker for India, by some distance. He has bowled India to more Test victories than any other – again by a long, long way. He is one of the only two bowlers in the history of Test cricket to capture 10 wickets in an innings. He has had a road named after him in the city of Bangalore.
After retirement he has been appointed as the president of Karnataka State Cricket Association, chairman of the National Cricket Academy and head of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) technical committee.
“In Anil Kumble, we have a new chairman who has unquestioned experience not only as a player with India but also as an administrator with Karnataka State Cricket Association as well,” ICC President Alan Isaac said in a statement after the Executive Board meeting here.
