The appointment, made in accordance with the Institutes of Information Technology (Public-Private Partnership) Act 2017, was conveyed through an official order dated August 25, 2023.
The decision to appoint Anil Kumble, also serving as Chairman of the ICC Cricket Committee, was sanctioned by the President of India in her capacity as the visitor of the IIITs. The official order states, “The Hon’ble President of India… is pleased to nominate Shri Anil Kumble… as the chairperson of the Board of Governors (BoG) of the Indian Institute of Information Technology (Public-Private Partnership) Tiruchirapalli for a duration of three years, commencing from August 25, 2023.”

Notably, Kumble retired from all forms of cricket before the 2011 IPL auctions. Soon after, he was appointed as a mentor for the Bangalore franchise. His guidance led Bangalore to the runners-up position in the 2011 IPL. In 2013, Kumble stepped down as the mentor for Bangalore and assumed the same role for the Mumbai franchise.
In October 2012, Kumble assumed the role of ICC Cricket Committee Chairman. In June 2016, following the recommendation of BCCI’s advisory committee, Kumble became the head coach of India’s cricket team. He held the position successfully for a year, except for India’s loss in the 2017 Champions Trophy final. Allegedly due to a fallout with captain Virat Kohli, Kumble was replaced by Ravi Shastri. Despite this, he still heads ICC’s technical committee and remains an influential mentor at the NCA for young cricketers.
