To cite an example, those players, who board the team bus late, will be fined $50. The coach is organising everything for the West Indies tour as the team is getting ready for the long trip.
Besides having an official meeting with the players every fourth day, as fixed by Kumble, he also wants the players to get massage on time. The coach wants the players to remain focused on the field and the enforcement of certain rules will help them in doing the same.
On July 12 in London, Sachin Tendulkar highlighted Kumble’s urge to compete. “Anil (Kumble) is a hard competitor. He will not make any compromises on the field. My experience with him has been fantastic. He has been a big match-winner. Anil is ready to share everything he has learnt from this sport. He has played for 20 years. There is plenty to share. For players, I would tell them ‘go and grasp as much information from Anil’. And above all enjoy cricket. Let it be competitive, play in the right spirit,” said Tendulkar.
