He was appointed as the captain of the Indian test cricket team on 8 November 2007 [1]. He will captain the team for the three test home series against Pakistan. He succeeds his state team mate Rahul Dravid, who resigned as the captain in September 2007 [2]. Since his debut in international cricket in April 25, 1990, he has taken over 560 Test wickets and 330 ODI wickets. Although often criticized as not a big turner of the ball[1], Kumble is the second highest wicket taker among leg spinners in Test cricket behind leg spinner Shane Warne of Australia and the third of all bowlers after Warne and off spinner Muttiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka. He is one of only two bowlers in the history of cricket to have taken all 10 wickets in a test innings, the other being Jim Laker of England.[2] Kumble is currently ranked the 7th best bowler in Tests by the International Cricket Council. He was awarded Padma Shri by Government of India in 2005.

Career

Kumble is a right-arm leg spinner with an unorthodox style, most famous for his flipper. He started his career as a medium pacer, which has given him a useful faster delivery. He relies more on accuracy, variations and bounce than spinning the ball.[4] His unique bowling style can be attributed to matting pitches in Bangalore which assist top-spin and over-spin.[8] The flipper is the name of a particular bowling delivery used in cricket, generally by a leg spin bowler. ...

Kumble is one of only two bowlers ever (the other being Jim Laker) to have taken all 10 wickets in a Test innings. Kumble achieved this against Pakistan in the second Test played in New Delhi between 4 February and 8 February 1999, although by failing to dismiss Pakistan's Waqar Younis in either innings, he missed out on the achievement of dismissing all 11 batsmen in a Test match. It has been said that once he had got 9 wickets his friend and teammate Javagal Srinath tried not to take a wicket so that Kumble could take the 10th. The achievement was commemorated by naming a traffic circle in Bangalore after him.

Anil Kumble (1036 words)
On a turning track, Kumble can be pretty unplayable as he mixes his bag of tricks to bamboozle the batsman.
Kumble has never been a big spinner of the ball but his accuracy and his enormous variety make him a difficult bowler to handle.
Kumble came into the side as a relatively unknown 19-year-old on the tour of England in 1990, was promptly forgotten for a couple of years and was back in the team on the basis of an outstanding Irani Trophy performance in 1992-93.
Anil Kumble - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1167 words)
Kumble is currently the highest wicket-taker for India in one-day internationals and Test matches, having taken over 500 Test wickets and 300 ODI wickets.
Kumble achieved this against Pakistan in the second Test played in New Delhi, India between 4 February and 8 February 1999, although by failing to dismiss Pakistani quick Waqar Younis in either innings, he missed out on the achievement of dismissing all 11 batsmen in a Test match.
Kumble has largely evaded the general public's eye throughout his career, but his work for the Indian cricket team is invaluable.
