He always led the country's bowling attack from the front but Anil Kumble believes that as the new head coach of the Indian cricket team, his role will be in the "background" as it is the players who "come first". The former captain and India's highest wicket-taker Kumble was named the team's head coach for a one-year tenure. Asked about his plans for the team, he said, "Strategy will be to win. There is still time to think about all that and sit with the players. I have a short and long-term plan for the upcoming series (against West Indies), but I cannot plan alone; I also need players to pitch in." Anil Kumble had something to say to M S Dhoni and Virat Kohli.
