Mumbai; Dec.1: Cricket legend Anil Kumble on yesterday decided to step down as chief mentor of Mumbai Indians with immediate effect.
The former leg-spinner has been associated with the Indian Premier League (IPL) outfit since January 2013 and now has decided to pursue other opportunities in sports and cricket.
"As I move on to pursue other interests around cricket, I shall be amiss if I do not express my deep sense of appreciation to The Ambani family, particularly Smt. Nita Ambani, Akash Ambani and Nikhil Meswani for their unstinted support and empowerment".
"The players and my support team (coaching and non- coaching staff) have been an admirable bunch and were a joy to work with. Finally, I thank the MI fans for their constant support", added the former India captain.
