Mumbai: Legendary Indian cricketer Anil Kumble has been one of the most successful players the country has had.

Having played 403 international games excluding T20Is, the Karnataka cricketer has taken 956 wickets in his 18-year-career.

 

During his flight from Bengaluru to Mumbai, Kumble just made a cricket fan’s day when the latter asked if she could meet him.

Sohini Mitter, who was in the same flight as Kumble, tweeted, “The legendary @anilkumble1074 in my BLR-MUM flight. Glanced at him once and was reminded of that game in West Indies where he bowled with a bandaged jaw. Teared up a bit. Gawwddd, I'm such a sucker for cricket memories.”

“I want to go up to @anilkumble1074 and say a 'Thank You' for all the joy, all the victories, all the memories. But, I am getting cold feet,” she said in another tweet.

To this, Kumble replied, “Please feel free to come over and say hi after take off @Mittermaniac”.

 

 Later, she uploaded a photo of the 47-year-old’s autograph on the micro-blogging site.
