NEW DELHI: India's Test Virat Kohli today welcomed new head coach Anil Kumble into to the team saying he was looking forward to the work with the legendary leg-spinner.

"Heartiest welcome to @anilkumble1074 Sir. Look forward to your tenure with us. Great things in store for Indian Cricket with you ??" Kohli tweeted shortly after Kumble was appointed as head coach for a one-year term.

Kumble's appointment brought an end to the prolonged suspense over who will take over the reins of the side.

The 45-year-old pipped former Team Director Ravi Shastri, Australians Tom Moody and Stuart Law and a host of others to clinch the high-profile position following an elaborate

selection process headed by a three-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.
