  • For Kumble, actions always mattered much more than words, substance always meant more than style. If he was a mathematician he would have been more interested in an efficient solution, rather than an elegant one…
    Kumble didn’t have a poetic bowling action, neither did he impart extraordinary turn on the ball. But 35 times in his Test career he showed us the art of taking five-wickets (on 8 of those occasions, he ended with 10 wickets in the match).
    It was only fitting that he once got 10 wickets in an innings (probably the batsman’s equivalent of a 400). Over a span of a monumental career, he taught us one crucial lesson: turn is temporary, wickets are permanent.
