Hi I had posted an article on my blog long time back about Anil Kumble, it was written in 2006, when Kumble had taken 500 wickets.
Anil Kumble- A Truly Jumbo Sized Career
Anil Kumble is nicknamed as “Jumbo “ maybe something to with his height and big build. On March 11,2006 he lived up to his nickname when he trapped Steve Harmison lbw and became the first Indian and only the 5th bowler after Shane Warne, Muthaiah Muralitharan, Courtney Walsh and Glenn Mc Grath to enter a very elite club of bowlers who have taken more than 500 wickets in Test Matches. But for me “Jumbo” symbolizes more than just wickets taken and dry statistics. It also symbolizes something more, a thing called as attitude or what some people call as character .
