    Like Walsh was when he passed Kapil, Kumble is in his prime. Big applause to him.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Walsh and Kumble have two things in common - humility and the fact that they were ready to learn from their past mistakes. This is why they have been at their prime at the latter stages of their careers.

    Thats quite a profund obsevation imo. Kumble and Walsh are both a rare commodity in cricket today. Which has to be recognized.

    Does anyone else think Kumble can break 600 test wickets ?

    I think that would a very big ask, he might make 550, but 600 is a lot more Cricket, and he's been playing a long time already.

    I'd just say take it a bit at a time.
    Don't worry about big goals - certainly 500 is a realistic goal, hopefully it'll happen sometime in early 2006 or so.
    It's amazing how things just keep rolling if you don't think too far ahead. What's near inconceivable now (I mean, in 1999 I don't think anyone would possibly have said Warne would be playing in The Ashes 2005) can come around without anyone really noticing if you just take things a bit at a time.

    Off the field maybe; I've always thought we've been a bit quick to forget Walsh's odd transgression on the field.
    The barrage of Bouncers at Devon Malcolm was one of the most unforgivable, needless things ever to be seen in cricket.

    Superb bowler, real hard working cricketer and a really good bloke if any one of you get the chance to speak to him personally.

    If anyone broke Kapil's record, I'm extremely glad Kumble did it. His bowling is getting better with age and despite playing top level cricket for over 15 years, he still gives it his all in the field and of course when he's bowling.

    In my opinion he's the greatest spinner India has produced and he's showing us he's got a few years left in him still.

    Well done to Anil!

    You may be right - quite possibly - but it'd be interesting if Bedi and such had had the opportunity to play as many games as Kumble.

    Your right about this mate. But I can only comment of what I've seen of Bedi and Kumble and their reputations. I rate Kumble slightly higher than Bedi because even in those dark periods of Indian Cricket where we didn't possess any match winners in the bowling department, Kumble regularly won matches for India. Bedi had a fair bit of support in Chandrasekhar, Venkat etc. But Kumble had no one apart from Srinath to an extent.

    A bowling attack of Prasad, Kumble, Raju, Srinath, Chauhan doesn't inspire me with much confidence (barring Srinath and Kumble). I think it was Kumble's lack of support and his match winning ability to take quick wickets, yet bowl for huge spells that makes him (in my eyes) the best spinner India has produced.

    I remember him terrorising poor Venkatapathy Raju in India.

    The captain was showing as if he shouldnt bowl those bouncers but he kept hurling them. This was the series in which Manoj Prabhakar started opening the batting for India albeit for a brief period.

    But really the aim of a fast bowler is to take wickets. If the batsman is meek enough to be terrorised in this day and age of helmets, I dont blame the bowler.

    Helmets, chest-guards etc. aren't to stop it hurting, they're to stop broken bones!
    A player with no real ability with the bat, someone who can't be expected to defend himself from injury, should IMO never be subjected to constant short-pitched bowling.
    It doesn't matter how much protective equipment you get, you're still going to get injuries if you bowl Bouncers at a hapless tailender.
