Yes, it was a shocking news. It's quite difficult for Indian cricket fans to accept that we are going to lose 2 of our legends at a span of such a short time. Kumble's decision to quit took one and all by surprise as no one really anticipated this tiding just towards the end of the Kotla Test.
Well, I feel that he too is good enough to have gone for some more time, atleast for a year or so. But the man has achieved everything he could have dreamt of-with 619 wickets to his name, he is not only the leading wicket taker for India, but also the 3rd highest of the world. He would always remain an exemplary figure in cricket, and I salute the finest leg spinner that India has ever seen!
