‘Jumbo’ the best
The move to do away with a foreign cricket coach shows that there is immense talent and vision in India. Anil Kumble fits the bill perfectly as he is a strong-willed cricketer with a never-say-die approach. The sight of Anil Kumble emerging from the pavilion, ready to bowl, his face bandaged, in the Antigua Test of 2002, is one of cricket’s most inspiring images. He became the first bowler to dismiss Brian Lara while bowling with a broken jaw. We wish ‘Jumbo’ the best.
