Farewell to Anil Kumble - the pride of Indian cricket

The leg-spinner ended his 132-match Test career with 619 wickets, the highest by an Indian bowler and third highest in the world test cricket after Muralitharan and Warne. His ODI tally stood at an equally impressive 337 wickets which he achieved from 271 matches. This cricket legend and great gentleman who started his International career for India on Apr 25, 1990 (ODI vs Sri Lanka) and Aug 9, 1990 (test vs England) will always be admired by all Indian cricket fans.

He is one of my favs; all the best Anil for your future life. You rock.

In his account:

Test: 619 wickets
ODI : 337 wickets
First-class : 1136 wickets
List A : 514 wickets
Twenty20 : 11 wickets
