RP-SG group partnering Virat Kohli's foundation has nominated Anil Kumble coach of the year award. Kumble, who had an unceremonious exit as India coach after differences with Kohli, is competing with Bisheshwar Nandi (Gymnastics), Balwan Singh (Kabaddi), Harendra Singh (Hockey) and Vijay Davecha (Golf) for the award. The nominations were announced on Wednesday and the winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held in Mumbai on November 11. Terming this an "authentic" sports award, Bhupathi said: "Having an award at the end of a season not only inspires youth but recognises the past players. It's exciting to have an authentic sport award in the country. I don't think we have one. It will definitely create an aspiration to achieve more."
