Anil Kumble resigns from NCA post
Royal Challengers Bangalore mentor and India legend Anil Kumble resigned from the post of chairman of the National Cricket Academy on Monday citing lack of time and non alignment of vision with the rest of the committee at the NCA as reasons.
Anil Kumble is currently the president of the Karnataka State Cricket Association, chief mentor of the Royal Challengers Bangalore and runs his company Tenvic which manages players such as Vinay Kumar, Sreenath Aravind and Muralidharen Gautam.
"I had a three-year vision, a holistic approach to make NCA better. I had made 10 presentations during my tenure as chairman with the hope that my vision could be accepted. Even on Sunday I had discussed this at the NCA meeting in Chennai. But it was not in alignment with the rest of the committee," Kumble told the Press Trust of India.
"It didn't make sense to just be a figurehead in this kind of a situation. So, I thought it was better that somebody else take over."
Kumble stated that he will continue as the president of the KSCA, “As president of the KSCA I can take decisions in the interest of the game and cricketers. I will do whatever is the best I can do in this regard”
MP Pandove of the Punjab Cricket Association, who is also the chairman of the BCCI’s specialised academies committee, will be the interim chairman of the NCA.
