The present Head coach of Team India, Anil Kumble, will continue as the team's coach till West Indies series, subject to his acceptance, said COA Vinod Rai on Monday.

Earlier on June 9, the BCCI seemed all set to retain chief coach Anil Kumble as acting President CK Khanna wrote a letter to Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary urging him to defer the recruitment process until the end of the West Indies tour. 

However, a final call was only to be taken after Committee of Administrators (COA) give a final nod.

The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman has sought more time to decide on chief coach Anil Kumble's future.

With majority of the senior members including acting BCCI president CK Khanna and IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla against the hasty removal of Kumble, the chances of the spin legend getting an extension has increased manifold.
