According to a report in "Mumbai Mirror", Kumble will receive a salary of Rs 6.25 crore per year. It is, however, Rs 75 lakh less than what Shastri got when he served as Team India Director.
"The fee is about Rs 75 lakh less than what Ravi Shastri was being paid annually but much more than the salary drawn by Gary Kirsten and Duncan Fletcher, both of whom were getting between Rs 3-4 crores," the newspaper reported today (August 23).
Kumble was appointed as India coach in June, for a period of one year, and yesterday (August 22) won his first series as India defeated West Indies 2-0 in the four-match rubber.
India and West Indies will play 2 Twenty20 Internationals this weekend (August 27, 28) in USA.
