Regarded as one of the greatest spinners of the world, battle-hardened warrior Anil Kumble's contribution to Indian cricket goes way beyond churning out match-winning spells with spectacular consistency for the past 18 years.

The leg-spinner ended his 132-match Test career with 619 wickets, the highest by an Indian bowler. His one-day career tally stood at an equally impressive 337 wickets from 271 matches when he ended it last year.
Kumble had been battling injuries, indifferent form and oft-repeated queries on retirement for quite some while.
