7th February, Rose day with our Anil Kumble!
It’s been 18 years since that historic day where India destroyed Pakistan in a cricket match.
On February 7th, Anil Kumble made the match against Pakistan most victorious one by bagging all the 10 wickets of the inning. Kumble crushed the Pakistani Cricket Team by 212 runs in New Delhi.
“It’s a dream, an honor to get all 10,” Kumble said after winning the man of the match title. He also said that, “I don’t think I would have got there without their(Indian Team) support”. “It was a great team effort, but the best thing is that India won the match to level the series.”
Three years ago, Kumble said,”A ‘Perfect Ten’ isn’t something you set out to achieve as a cricketer. I would attribute the events of 7th February, 1999 to destiny.”
Today, as the internet revisits the wondrous inning played by Kumble, the humble leg break googly master replied with this tweet:
