MS Dhoni just announced his retirement from international cricket as he will soon be turning up leading the Chennai Super Kings franchise in the upcoming IPL. The former captain’s legacy can never be forgotten as he’s lead India to three different ICC titles. It’s a distinct record held by no other captain in cricket history.
MS Dhoni will give 100% in IPL: Anil Kumble
Anil Kumble who is the Head coach of the Kings XI Punjab franchise recently spoke to NDTV Sports. Where he talked about how the CSK skipper will give his hundred per cent in every game. Despite retiring from international cricket. He expects him to give his absolute best this season in the IPL which is to take place in the UAE.
“Knowing MS, he will give his 100%. Even when I played the IPL, the second season, I had retired from international cricket,” said Kumble, as reported by Indian media outlet NDTV Sports.
Anil Kumble also spoke about the inclusion of more Indian coaches in the IPL. Since the IPL is an Indian product he wants more of the Indian coaches to be coaching the franchises in the cash-rich league.
“I would like to see more Indian coaches in the IPL. It is not a true reflection of Indian resources. I would want to see many Indians being part of the IPL as head coaches. It is a bit of an irony – one Indian as head coach. I think at some point in time there will be a lot more Indian coaches,” the KXIP coach added in the same interview.
On the flipside, Anil Kumble will be in the hunt for Kings XI Punjab‘s first title hunt this season. He has his fellow state man KL Rahul as his captain this season along with the support of other foreign players like Glenn Maxwell, Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran.
