Kumble to Lead: Selectors Got it Right

The decision to give Kumble the top job in Test cricket is a commendable move. Dhoni has shown the right signs to be capable of the job, but it won’t hurt for him to play some more Test cricket before taking on the task in the future. Kumble is a certainty in the team, does not play ODI cricket and has utmost a couple of years to go before retirement. So giving Kumble the job is uncomplicated. Besides, it is a fitting response to someone who has served Indian cricket so well over the years but has got a lot less of the conventional recognition that is mostly reserved for batsmen and all-rounders.
