Anil Kumble is undoubtedly India's greatest spinner of all time. Both in terms of wickets and by being on the victorious side the most number of times. He made his debut in 1990 against England. In just two years time he took his first five-wicket haul (6-53) against South Africa. In 1993-94, in the final of the Hero Cup against West Indies, he set the record of 6-12. Though not a orthodox leg-spinner in the actual sense of the word, his style is extremely successful. With a clever mix of top-spinners, googlies, leg-breaks, flight and a variation of pace, he has piled up wickets after wicket. The mid-nineties saw the surfacing of Anil Kumble as an established strike bowler. But even though he was a confirmed match-winner, he needed something that would take him to new heights. The moment arrived at the Ferozshah Kotla, in early February of 1999, when he single-handedly took all the Pakistani wickets in the second innings to become the second bowler in the history of Test matches to get 10 wickets in an innings. In December 2001, he got his 300th Test wickets. A year later, he reached the feat in one-dayers. In 2004-05 he went past 400 wickets in Tests. He became the first Indian bowler to reach 500 Test wickets, when he dismissed Steve Harmison in the Mohali Test. provides the profile of Anil Kumble and other cricketers around the world.
