Kumble leaves Mumbai Indians

Mumbai, Nov 30 (IANS) Cricket legend Anil Kumble on Monday decided to step down as chief mentor of Mumbai Indians with immediate effect.

The former leg-spinner has been associated with the Indian Premier League (IPL) outfit since January 2013 and now has decided to pursue other opportunities in sports and cricket.

In his first year as mentor, Mumbai Indians won the IPL and the Champions League in 2013. The outfit again won IPL this year.

“I sign off with the obvious satisfaction of moulding a set of brilliant individuals to a high performing unit. Over the three years, Mumbai Indians met unprecedented success winning the IPL twice and the Champions League once. Winning both trophies in the same year (2013) being our crowning glory,” said India’s highest wicket-taker in both Tests and One-Day Internationals (ODI).

“As I move on to pursue other interests around cricket, I shall be amiss if I do not express my deep sense of appreciation to the Ambani family for their unstinted support and empowerment. The players and my support team have been an admirable bunch and were a joy to work with. Finally, I thank the fans for their constant support. I wish the Mumbai Indians farewell, convinced that I remain a member of the Ambani family.”
