I think a dead test match was made memorable finally made memorable for better reasons than those missed catches and physical contacts etc.. I couldn't help but get all emotional seeing the heartfelt farewell given to Anil Kumble.I am not sure if I will be as emotional when Sourav gets his farewell in Nagpur.
Anil Kumble, despite his waining striking powers in last few years, was one of the few reasons I felt good about cricket as a sport. Now with him gone, I think one of the few remaining gentlemen is leaving the game. In the times of 20-20 gentleman's sport is losing good old world gentlemanly values and if incidents involving Harbhajan and Gambhir off late are anything to go by, there isn't much to look forward to in this game of glorious uncertainties.
Farewell Jumbo, may you fly even higher, stronger.....
