Newly-appointed coach Anil Kumble today said the issue of conflict of interest has been discussed with the BCCI and will be resolved before he officially assumes charge of the Indian cricket team. Former captain Kumble was appointed the team's head coach for a one-year tenure by the BCCI on the eve of its working committee meeting in Dharamsala. Kumble's association with Tenvic, a company "in the business of sports and consulting", has raised questions around a possible conflict of interest in the past. "We (BCCI and I) have already discussed that. Whatever needs to be done will be done before I take up this role officially. That has been discussed, and it has been clear with the BCCI as well. Something that can be easily resolved," Kumble said when asked about the issue by reporters after BCCI's announcement.
