Anil Kumble’s Gesture to a Fan Who Was Too Scared to Approach Him Shows Why He’s a True Champ

Anil Kumble is somewhat of a landmark in Indian cricket. The former cricketer still remains the third-highest wicket taker of all time and is remembered as one of the best right-arm leg spin bowlers. Even after his retirement from the sport, he continues to be a fan favorite.

A fan recently spotted Kumble in a flight she was taking from Bangalore to Mumbai. In her tweet, she mentioned spotting him and then described how looking at the former Indian cricketer reminded her of the instance wherein a match between India and West Indies, Kumble had bowled with a bandaged jaw after an injury. In that match, Kumble had bowled 14 overs and picked the wicket of Brian Lara.
The fan also mentioned how she was getting sentimental over the cricket memories she has of him – and would want to go talk to him, but she was too scared to do so.

Noticing the tweets, Anil Kumble responded to her on Twitter asking her to meet him after the flight takes off.

Obviously, the fan was beyond thrilled.

The fan, Sohini, posted an update after the flight landed – sharing a picture of her boarding pass and stating how that she would have to get it framed now since that was where Kumble had given her an autograph. She also mentioned how one day she would love to learn humility from him.

Despite being perhaps one of the biggest stars of Indian cricket, Kumble is still humble enough to engage his fan.
