Dharamsala, June 23 (IANS) BCCI President Anurag Thakur on Thursday named former India skipper Anil Kumble as the head coach of the national cricket team for the next one year.

The decision was taken after Sourav Ganguly, one of the members of the BCCI's Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) also comprising Sachin Tendulkar and V.V.S. Laxman, met Thakur and Secretary Ajay Shirke at the ongoing cricket conclave here.

Kumble's first assignment with the national team will be the gruelling four-match Test tour to the West Indies next month.
