Anil Kumble Now the New Head Coach
Arun Jaitley, the Finance Minister of India has mentioned that Britain's decision of leaving the European Union will not affect Indian economy as the country is prepared for it. Though India's Sensex dropped by 3.4% to 26, 022.60 points after the Brexit results came, but Mr. Jaitley said that the market fundamentals of the country are strong enough to take care of this volatility.
Former India Captain and Leg Spinner, Anil Kumble has been appointed as the new head coach of Indian Cricket Team for a one-year deal. Though he does not have background of international or first-class coaching, but is known for being India's leading Test wicket taker who took 619 wickets in 132 games. Duncan Fletcher left his role after 2015 World Cup, and ever since then Team India has been without a head coach. However, now the position is filled.
