Mumbai:Former Indian player Vinod Kambli is back in the news with him reportedly being in contention to lead Mumbai if the present incumbent Sairaj Bahutule's plans to move to Maharashtra materialises.

It may be mentioned here that Mumbai cricket is in for a major revamp with former cricketer Karsan Ghavri taking over as the coach following the sudden exit of Chandrakant Pandit.

The 33-year-old southpaw who played 17 Tests (average 54.2) and 104 One-day Internationals (average 32.59) for India has been a regular in the first-class circuit since 1989-90.

He rose to fame when he, together with school batting chum Sachin Tendulkar raked up a record 664 run partnership.

Kambli was a member of the India's 92 and 96 World Cup squads and last wore national colours in the Coca Cola Champions Trophy final against Sri Lanka at Sharjah.

Kambli, who missed out last season due to ill health and a leg injury, has a chance of getting back into cricketing rhythm in the Mid Day Kanga League that kicks off this Sunday.
