Anil Kumble and Virender Sehwag are two of the legendary players of the Indian cricket team. While one was a magician of spinning the ball, the other was a destructive batsman. Both of them together have given nightmares to the opposition teams.
Anil Kumble and Virender Sehwag, both of the greats share a very strong bond since their International stint. And their friendship and bond is visible even today, be it inside the commentary box or outside on social media.
Anil Kumble is celebrating his 49th birthday today and the whole social media is flooded with posts and messages wishing the greatest bowler on his birthday. From fans to cricketers around the world, everyone is taking to their social media account and is pouring birthday wishes for him.
The ‘Nawab of Najafgarh” also wished him but in his own unique style. In his tweet, Virender Sehwag asked sorry from Kumble as, during one of the matches of Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2007/08, Kumble missed on his century due to Sehwag’s advice. He wrote:
“One of India’s greatest ever Match winners and a terrific role model. Sorry for depriving you of your second century
