Arguably the greatest spinner to have represented India, Anil Kumble turns 50 on Saturday (October 17) and birthday wishes are pouring in for him from all around the world. On the occasion, Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir and many other prominent members of cricket fraternity extend greetings for the legendary Indian leg-spinner. Kumble, unlike other successful spinners, wasn’t known to turn the ball a long way but he instead relied on his accuracy to breach batsmen’s defences. Be it restricting the run-flow or taking wickets in a cluster, the leg-spinner rose to every challenge and guided India to numerous victories. Anil Kumble Would’ve Picked 900 Wickets With DRS: Gautam Gambhir.

Kumble made his international debut way back in April 1990 and didn’t take long in becoming the cornerstone of the Indian team in all formats. His mysterious spin deliveries gave headache to the mightiest of batting line-ups, and the leggie crashed one record after another. He also went on to become only the second bowler after Jim Laker to take 10-wickets in a Test innings. Kumble eventually finished his career with 956 wickets, still the third-highest in international cricket.
