Anil Kumble’s Sweet Gesture Towards A Fan Who Was Scared To Approach Him Is Winning Hearts

Hailed as one of the greatest spinners in cricket history, Anil Kumble’s contribution to the sport remains unparalleled. Though not a great turner of the cricket ball, Kumble picked up a staggering 619 wickets in his illustrious Test career listing himself as the third highest wicket-taker of all time.

Apart from his exceptional qualities as a cricketer, the Bengaluru-born cricketer is a man of high morals. Being a perfect ambassador of the ‘gentleman’s game, Anil Kumble has always redefined class on and off the field. And of course, he definitely knows a thing or two about being humble.

While we can go on praising this man without a pause, a fan got a first-hand experience of Anil Kumble’s gentle character.

A female fan named Sohini came across Kumble in her flight from Bangalore to Mumbai. She immediately took to Twitter to share the special moment. In her tweets, she mentioned how a glance at the man took her back to a match between India and the West Indies where the legendary leggie bowled with a bandaged jaw.

She went on to express her desire to go up to the former cricketer and thank her for being an extraordinary server to Indian cricket.

Much to her surprise, the tweets caught the eye of Kumble and he asked the girl to come and meet after the flight lands. Wow.

Needless to say, the fan could not believe what she read.

Yes, dreams do come true.

After the flight took off, the fan posted an update sharing the picture of her boarding pass. And guess what? It had Anil Kumble’s autograph. She also mentioned that she is going to get this framed and how she wishes to take lessons of humanity from the cricketer.

You just cannot help but respect this man. Probably one of those cricketers who have absolutely zero haters all over the world. Take a bow, Jumbo!
