Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq admitted that legendary India spinner Anil Kumble was a “very serious cricketer”.
The 50-year-old made the comments while talking to India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.
Kumble is one of only two bowlers to take all 10 wickets in an innings, with the other being England spinner Jim Laker.
Kumble achieved the unbelievable feat against Pakistan in Delhi in February 1999.
He was smooth as silk when he batted, and maintained the same elegance during this chat too. Thanks @Inzamam08 🙏🙏 .. A full fledged attempt from me too😂😂💯https://t.co/n7xyxGPPNH pic.twitter.com/azgVf3yRlR
