A Farewell to Brilliant Student of World Cricket
It was the Year of 1990.. This was the year of My Matriculation. During these Days
Vinod Kambli was a very promising name in first class level. There was a tournament
In Sharjah Called Australasia Cup. Indian Team was on leader ship of Md Azhar Uddin. One name did come to my notice. It was Anil Kumble. I remember Daily
Songbad was the most popular news paper in Bangladesh. They have also made the
Mistake by mixing up the sir name of Kambli. But after end of the carrier where
Is kambli today? But the unsung hero of Indian cricket Anil Kumble has decided
To hang up the boot. He has truly established himself as the Legend.
One era of the world cricket is finished after retirement of Anil.
I am great fan of fab four. But if I am true fan of Indian Cricketer, It is Anil Kumble. From
The very early stage of his carrier his critics accused him not to spin the ball that much
But None can deny besides his legendary counter part contemporary cricketer Shane Warne he has not only brought back the art of leg spin in world cricket but also established spin bowling in the highest honor.
If Early 80s was the era of Fearsome pace bowling 90s was completely dedicated
Spin bowling . World Cricket has got some great spin artists in both form of Finger and
Wrist Spin. Highest wicket Takers Muthiah Muralidharan, saqlain Mushtaq, Harbhajan Sing , Stuart Mc Gil. All have made their marks in world cricket. But keeping Ajhanta
Mendis in mind, there will be great vacuum in world cricket.
I have lots of beautiful memories with Anil Kumble as a viewers. His 6/12 In Hero Cup, His all 10 Wkts.
Basically from my Child hood I have heard about Jim Laker’s 10/53. But It was
My best of luck that I was the big witness of Kumble’s 10 of Kotla.
Being a Mechanical engineer he is a very well mannered and humble person . As a Captain he has done the great Job. His act as a leader in Sydney after this controversial
Match was fantastic. I think Perth win was the greatest of all time Indian Victory.
In last some days Indian Media Could not show proper respect to Kumbley.
But Great Warrior like Kumble knows how to stop. May be he will go and open a new innings for the Cricket.
Now a days over all charm of the Cricket is downward. Lots of unwanted people Like Lalit Modi and all are continuously spoiling the cricket environment via 20-20 hype.
Way things are going on I am really scared we are going to loose the brightest students
Kumble was one of the last representatives of those brightest students of world cricket
In this Corporate aggression.
But Kumble will be missed off and on by the true cricket lovers.
