New Delhi:

Former India skipper Anil Kumble has joined the likes of American tennis star Lindsay Davenport and Namibian athlete Frank Fredericks in the World Anti-Doping Agency's standing committee for monitoring and coordinating the global fight against doping in sport.

The legendary Indian leg-spinner's inclusion in the athlete committee was approved by WADA's Foundation Board at its November 23 meeting. Kumble's term starts January 1 next year.

The nominations for the various standing committees are made each year by WADA's stakeholders, including governments and sports authorities and one-third of members are replaced every year.

"The Committees report to the Executive Committee, WADA's supreme decision-making body," WADA said in a statement.
