Ever since he was appointed Team India coach, Anil Kumble has been a very man. From monitoring players’ training session to devising new methods to help players bond well, Kumble has been winning every fan’s heart with his efforts.

And the BCCI’s move to let Anil Kumble interact with the fans via twitter is bound to take him, even more, closer to the fans. When BCCI tweeted about this it caused a widespread buzz on the social media.

The first-of-its-kind conversation, it was a memorable one. The questions from fans ranged on different issues they were related to the team as well as Kumble’s personal life. Kumble, the highest wicket taker for India in Tests, revealed why he is called Jumbo, whether he will continue to use his camera in the Caribbeans, his thoughts on Ravindra Jadeja and much more.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
