Bangalore: Governor Rameshwar Thakur has extolled leg spinner Anil Kumble, who retired from international cricket. The Governor said: “I am overwhelmed by your decision to bid adieu to international cricket after an illustrious career spanning over 18 years. Volumes have been said and written about your unparalleled achievements and accomplishments on and off the cricketing field. The very fact that you have been acclaimed as one of the finest human beings not only by your own colleagues and admirers, but also by your rival team members stands out as the greatest tribute to your quiet crusade on the cricket field.” — Special Correspondent
