Under Anil’s Captaincy, V made it to d Finals in IPL2 n Semis in IPL3.
According to me Kumble was d Greatest Captain in IPL. His Game plans n Tactics were absolutely Brilliant and Different.
Here are some examples of his different Thoughts:
He Bowled d very first over in d final match against Deccan Chargers in IPL2. Meanwhile he took d wicket of Adam Gilchrist in d first over. I think this was d first time a Spinner bowled d first over in a match. Kumble introduced d new Style.
In a match against Mumbai Indians in IPL3, he introduced our that time bowling spearhead Dale Steyn at d 12th over, n dismissed dt time very dangerous batsman Kieron Pollard. He saved Steyn’s precious overs until Pollard arrived to Bat, by not letting him to bowl until 12th over. This plan earned the result.
In the IPL2, he introduced Van Der Merwe, who was a bowling all rounder, to up d order for num 3 position, who used to bat at num 6th r 7th. The plan was to increase the run rate as early as possible. Merwe scored 30+ runs in that match aggressively.
This shows d different thoughts n brilliant game plans of Anil Kumble. We really miss him a lot.
Hope his tactics n Aggressiveness as a captain will be delivered to our Vettori too.
Now we expect a lot from Kumble, both iin d stadium n outside, as he is our Mentor.
Rock on RCB..
