Happy Birthday Anil Kumble
Cricketer Birthday's

Happy Birthday to the Legend of Indian Cricket Anil Kumble

Anil Kumble is a former Indian cricketer ,captain and coach of Indian cricket team. A right-arm leg spin (leg break googly) bowler, he took 619 wickets in Test cricket and remains the third-highest wicket taker of all time (as of 2017, behind Muttiah Muralitharan and Shane Warne). Kumble was different from other bowlers of his class, as he was not a big turner of the ball, but depend primarily on pace, bounce, and accuracy.  

Born in Bengaluru, Karnataka, Kumble developed an early interest in cricket as he grew up watching players like B. S. Chandrasekhar before becoming a full-fledged cricketer. He made his First-class debut at the age of 19 while representing Karnataka. Soon he was picked up for the Austral-Asia Cup in 1990 before making his Test debut against England later that year. 

Most Memorable moment: On February 7, 1999 at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Anil Kumble became the second bowler in the history of Test cricket after Jim Laker to capture all ten wickets of an innings.
