The BCCI Committee of Administrators (COA) met Kumble on the sidelines of the BCCI Awards in Bengaluru on Wednesday. The COA had a detailed discussion with Kumble and assistant coaches R. Sridhar and Sanjay Bangar. Kumble has been asked to prepare a comprehensive report covering the the national team, women's team as well as junior teams.

Kumble, who took over as the coach in June, was appointed for a one-year term. The former leg-spinner has had a fruitful partnership with Virat Kohli as India notched up Test series wins over the West Indies, New Zeland and England, which propelled them to the No. 1 ranking. The team also scored ODI series win over New Zealand and England.
