Anil "Jumbo" Kumble represents the terms hard trier, match-winner, and a fighter. Being India's most effective bowler in both Test and ODI matches, Kumble has spearheaded the Indian bowling attack for more than a decade now. He is an out-and-out team man and one of the greatest spinners to have played the game. Kumble's phenomenal ability to stomach pain was proved in Antigua in 2002 when he bandaged his fractured jaw and returned to the field to deliver a stirring spell.

In a spectacular yet downplayed career, he has claimed practically every Indian record. Kumble has never been a great turner of the ball but has always extracted enough from the surface to fox the batsmen. His googly, sidespin and subtle variations in flight are enough to cause trouble.

In 1999, he became the second bowler ever to scalp ten wickets in a Test innings. The leg-spinner received the ultimate gift in the twilight of his career after he was named India's Test skipper in 2007.
