On the twenty second anniversary of Anil Kumble taking all ten wickets in a single Check innings, Gautam Gambhir on Sunday labelled the spinner because the “best match-winner” India ever had. Gambhir quote-tweeted a video shared by BCCI that confirmed the highlights of Kumble’s historic feat and wrote: “The best match-winner India ever had! Take a bow, legend! @anilkumble1074.” It was on February 7, 1999, that Anil Kumble turned simply the second bowler within the historical past of cricket to take all ten wickets in an innings of a Check match.

He achieved the feat in opposition to Pakistan at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi in the course of the second Check of the two-match collection.
India had set Pakistan a goal of 420 runs within the match and the guests bought off to a gentle begin as openers Shahid Afridi and Saeed Anwar placed on 101 runs for the primary wicket.
Thereafter, it was Kumble who got here into the assault and ran by the Pakistani batting line-up. The spinner, also called ”Jumbo”, first dismissed Afridi (41) within the twenty fifth over.
After the right-handed batter’s dismissal, India saved on taking wickets by Kumble, and Pakistan was lowered to 128/6 very quickly.
Kumble continued taking wickets at common intervals and he bought his tenth scalp within the 61st over after dismissing Wasim Akram.
This effort enabled India to register a win by 212 runs and Kumble turned the second bowler after England’s Jim Laker to take all ten wickets in a single Check innings.
Kumble completed with the bowling figures of 10-74 from 26.3 overs.
A legend of the sport, Kumble introduced his retirement from worldwide cricket in 2008. He completed with 619 wickets within the longest format of the sport.
He’s the third-highest wicket-taker (619) in Assessments, solely behind Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan (800) and Australia’s Shane Warne (708).
Kumble is at the moment the pinnacle coach of Kings XI Punjab within the Indian Premier League (IPL).
