New rules by Kumble shock to indian players
In a rather unique way of instilling the discipline in the Indian Cricket team, the newly appointed coach Anil Kumble has informed the cricketers that if they are late for the Indian team bus, they should be ready to pay up $50. He has also conveyed to them that an official meeting will be held every fourth day and that he is always there for any player who wants to come up to him to have a chat. In his first meeting in the Caribbean, Kumble also tried to streamline the role of the support staff. For example, masseurs have been given a fixed schedule and players can no longer go in asking for massage whenever they want.
To makes sure it’s not a one-sided affair, Kumble has already jotted down some suggestions and complaints by the players. It is learnt that while spelling out the roadmap during the Bengaluru meeting, which was also attended by Rahul Dravid, Virat Kohli, M S Dhoni, Kumble had requested the BCCI to handle their logistics in better manner. In order to make the player unwind in the busy schedule it is being reported that Kumble has scheduled a scuba diving session for the Indian cricketers in the coming days. It is being said that Kumble wants players to understand the importance of discipline and, at the same time, give them freedom.
