November 22nd 2007 will be a red letter day in the career of Anil Kumble, known as the silent assassin in cricket circles but Jumbo affectionately to his team mates.
Anil Kumble at the ripe old age of 37 (in cricketing parlance) will be leading Indian cricket team for the first time as captain against Pakistan in test matches. What a ground to debut as captain! Kumble at Kotla became the second bowler in the history of test cricket to take all 10 wickets in an innings and that too against his opponents today! At the Kotla, Kumble has 48 wickets in 5 matches and they have all come in winning causes.
