Anil Kumble is a former Indian international cricketer, who has played for the national cricket team of India from 1990 to 2008. Currently, he works as a Cricket coach and commentator for the international matches.
He was a leg-spinner, and an occasional right-handed batsman, who served the Indian cricket team about two decades as a leading player. He is the third-highest test wicket-taker of all-time in the history of the game, only after Muttiah Muralitharan and Shane Warne. His contribution to this sport brought him numerous admiration, achievements, and appreciations across the whole world along with the recognition by Wisden Cricket.
He used to play cricket since his childhood and represented the Karnataka team during his primary domestic days. The brilliant speed and fastest spin deliveries got him the nickname of ‘Jumbo’. He has played for the Under 19 team of India and appeared in the Australia-Asia Cup before joining the national squad.
Kumble made his international debut in April 1990 in an ODI against Sri Lanka, and test debut after a few months later against England in the same following year. His leg-spin bowling with the orthodox style made him a dependable bowler of the team, especially for his unique flipping technique. His bowling had sheer accuracy, wonderful variation, and perfect bounce. He is a man of principle and known for his discipline, which made him a member of the athlete’s commission of the World Anti-doping Agency in 2009.
