Anil Kumble, the right-arm leggie from Karnataka, is one of the greatest players this sport has ever produced. Kumble was never about spinning the ball square. Interestingly, according to many he hardly spun the bowl. He got all his wickets with metronomic accuracy, sheer will, and intelligent thinking. Jumbo was a master of varying the pace, using the bounce from the pitch.
Anil used to bowl long spells. His career spanned over 18 years. Though he is still remembered for the two special bowling spells. The first was in 2002. This time the leggie was hit on the jaw while batting. The report said he had a broken jaw. But he went on to bowl with a bandage around the jaw and the entire face. Despite the pain and a bothering bandage, he got the wicket of Brian Lara, one of the greatest batters of this game. In 1999, against Pakistan, Anil became the 2nd player in the history of the game to take 10 wickets in an innings.
After retirement, Anil worked for Karnataka State Cricket Association and ICC at various roles. He was the head coach of the Indian National Team for a while. Nowadays, he works as an expert on various cricket-related discussions on TV and on social media platforms.
