Basseterre: India head coach Anil Kumble has introduced some stringent rules for his team in the Caribbean ahead of their scheduled Test series against the West Indies, introducing a $ 50 fine for players who are late for the team bus.

Kumble, who was recently selected for the coveted post ahead of the likes of Ravi Shastri, has introduced the rule, a first of its kind, in order to maintain discipline, and keep the players focused on their tasks ahead.

Kumble has also fixed a time for the players to get their massages, aside from introducing the rule of holding an official meeting every fourth day. “Everything is organised. Kumble wants players to understand the importance of discipline and at the same time give them freedom” a source travelling with the team said .

“He knows where to draw the line. The Indian team is scheduled to go for scuba diving in the coming days. These small things have been kept for the players to unwind," The leading all-time Indian wicket-taker has been focusing a lot on team bonding ahead of his first task in the new role, re-introducing the John Wright-era 'Buddy sessions' and holding a musical session for the Indian squad with singer Vasundhara Das, another first with the Indian cricket team, before the team departed for the Caribbean.
