The BCCI confirmed on their website that they have settled all the dues with former coach Anil Kumble. Kumble was paid close to 1 crore, including 48.75 lakh as professional fees. He had stepped down from the position following India’s defeat to arch rival Pakistan at the Champions Trophy. However, under Anil’s wing, India did manage to earn a few laurels, with a number of Test series wins and 8 ODI wins.
Apart from Kumble, Ishant Sharma also received a sum of 1 crores, the Women’s team who finished runners up in the ICC Women’s World Cup received a sum of 45 lakhs each. Additionally, former cricketers like Vivek Razdan, Sarandeep Singh, Salil Ankola, Reetinder Sodhi, Yograj Singh and Robin Singh, received a sum of 35 lakhs each. Kumble’s successor Ravi Shastri had to contend with the likes of Virender Sehwag and Tom Moody for the position of head coach.
