Bengaluru, October 11: Former India skipper Anil Kumble has been appointed as the head of the Indian Premier League franchise Kings XI Punjab, starting 2020 season.

The former India leg-spinner Kumble replaces New Zealand’s Mike Hesson for the top post – who was halfway into his two-year deal.

Kumble served as the India coach in 2016-17 season while this assignment will be his maiden role with an IPL side. Following his retirement as player and skipper of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team, Bengaluru-based spinner was the mentor and then moved to Mumbai Indians for a similar role.
