Newly-appointed India cricket coach Anil Kumble dismissed reports of conflict of interest between his new job and his involvement in a sports firm as well as heading the ICC cricket committee.

The former India captain, who was named for the coveted post last week, has involvement in a company called Tenvic, which is in the business of sports and consulting.

Kumble said all issues have been addressed before signing on the dotted line and he will also continue as chairman of the ICC cricket committee.

“There is absolutely no conflict of interest. All things have been addressed,” Kumble said.

“There is the ICC cricket committee, for which I will not be able to dedicate as much time. However, I see no reason why I cannot continue as its chairman. There are other national coaches like Darren Lehmann on the committee.”
