After spending nearly a month in West Indies, India would head back to India to prepare for the New Zealand team from September 22 onward.
Kumble, who was one of India’s most successful spin bowlers, also said he would focus on the team’s bowling department.
Kumble also revealed that he was thinking of bringing in a fast bowling coach for India.
From July onwards it would be a packed season for the Indian cricket team as they are scheduled to play 17 Tests, including 13 at home, 8 ODIs and 3 T20s within the next new months.
