A release from the Chief Minister's office said the two held discussions on the development of sports.
Kumble told the Chief Minister that he would extend support if a sports university is set up in the state.
The ace leg-spinner also urged the chief minister to focus on establishing a sports material manufacturing factory.
Cities like Meerut and Jalandhar currently have such facilities and it would be of great help if a similar factory is set up in Andhra, the release quoted Kumble as saying.
He offered to help in this regard, it added.
