A legend says goodbye

March 30, 2007

Anil Kumble's farewell from the one-day internationals arena was, like the man himself, understated and modest. Having informed his team about his decision in the West Indies itself, he formally made the announcement in hometown Bangalore on Friday.

One couldn't help feeling that the great man, India's most successful bowler and a team-man to the core, deserved a better end to his ODI career.

Instead of a blaze of glory, Kumble ended up being part of an Indian team that failed to advance into the second round of the World Cup for the first time since the 1970s.
