Kumble is all set to give some tips to Indian cricket team, but this time in a conference room not on field. Former captain, will be a mentor for the players' off field personalities.
Kumble has got a go-ahead from BCCI for his new educational programme, that will help cricketers on several areas like handling money, fame, interacting with other players and behaviour in public, The Indian Express reports.
Kumble gave presentation to BCCI top brass on the education programme which will be conducted by Tenwic, a division of Anil Kumble Sports Pvt. Ltd, with each session being monitored by Kumble.
The programme will address handling 'instant success', self-sufficiency, anti-doping advice and management of finances. The programme will also make sure that cricketers learn how to speak English, handle the media during press conferences, and conduct themselves in public.
BCCI's contracted players will undergo this training.
With recent infamous off-field behaviours of the players, it seems that the programme will be of great benefit for them.
