Anil Kumble appointed as Indian cricket team head coach
Kumble's first assignment will be India's four-Test tour of the West Indies, Thakur said.
The appointment of bowling, batting and assistant coaches will be done soon, he added.
Kumble was among 57 candidates who applied for the position advertised by the BCCI earlier this month. He was included in the shortlist of 21 names, and, on Thursday, he interviewed with the cricket advisory committee in Kolkatta. The committee consists of former India players Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar and the former BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale, who acts as the committee's chief coordinator.
Kumble is the first Indian to be appointed full-time India coach since Kapil Dev resigned in September 2000.
