With 500 wickets in his bag
The Jumbo is Cricket's undisputed king
Even At 35, the Jumbo has not lost its sting
The opposition is reduced to nothing
When the Jumbo is on a song...

The Jumbo stands tall among the greats of Cricket
Like a Large elephant ruling an African forest
The Jumbo has trampled many teams with contempt
And richly deserves accolades from many a cricket's pundit...

Beneath this humble master of spin
Lies a silent murdering assassin
who has destroyed the toughest of opposition
With flippers and many a wrong one...


The Jumbo is respected by the Cricketing fraternity
And winning the matches has always been its priority
The Jumbo is feared by cricketers for its ferocity
And respected by all for its perseverance and dignity...

The Jumbo has however got a wrong deal
Inspite of its shrewdness and nerves of steel
We at BBC-TMS, salute this master
By presenting the Jumbo with the highest Cricket Oscar...

What a fabulous bowler Anil Kumble is. India is lucky to have a bowler like him.

absolutely great ! what a way to get it 4 balls and 3 wickets. I remember Kapil dev bowled ( rather wasted) tons of overs to get his last few wickets to get past all time great Sir Richard Hadlee.

What do you think meant more?

10-74 or 500 wickets?

India should be proud of Kumble

Not everyone can get 500 wickets

Yep, well done Anil.

Made our local lad, Richard Blakey, look completly out of his depth in his short lived test career.

Anil will be tested in West Indies against Lara.

He got Lara OUT couple of times,should be a good contest.

if kumble hadnt missed that couple of years due to injury, when india really struggled, he would have 600 wickets by now. But i think he'll still finish with 600 or so wickets. Great job Kumble, You're the greatest test match winner india has ever had.

BBC's summary of his career says
"Had jaw broken by a bouncer in Antigua in 2002 but carried on bowling in the same match."

I watched that match. This guy is a fine competitor who makes no excuses. Guess that's what matters more than any other talents.

He also is a decent bat as far as tail enders go.
