India's great leg-spinner Anil Kumble has recalled the tales of taking all 10 wickets in an innings of a Test match against Pakistan at Delhi's Ferozeshah Kotla ground in 1999. Kumble is the second bowler to achieve this milestone in history. Before him, Jim Laker of England achieved this feat.

Speaking to Instagram with former Zimbabwean fast bowler Manbagwa, Kumble said, “For me it is just like it happened yesterday.” This is very special for me. This was the 2 Test series that India and Pakistan were playing after a long time. The first Test was played in Chennai which we lost by 12 runs. While going to Kotla we knew we had to win. '

The 49-year-old Kumble revealed the situation on the fourth day of the match when he made history. He said, “I know that when the behavior of the wicket is repeated or there is an unlimited bounce I am more effective. It doesn't matter much if the ball doesn't spin too much because I can take advantage of unlimited bounce. '

Kumble described how his fellow fast bowler Javagal Srinath had assured him not to end the match with nine wickets and hence he was bowling outside the wicket. He said, 'Pakistan had got a good start till lunch. I knew it was a wicket. I changed ends after lunch. Then I got a wicket, got another and then went on to meet.

The former coach said, “I went bowling from lunch to tea break, but was tired.” I knew I had a chance to improve my performance because I was 6 on 6. '

He said, 'After lunch I got seven, eight, nine wickets. I finished my over and Srinath came. Perhaps he would not have bowled in a difficult situation. '

The former captain of the Indian team said, “Srinath had to forget everything and bowl outside, but I didn't say anything to him. I thought Wasim gives Akram a run. I thought I would have to take a wicket in one over because it is not good to ask for another over. In my luck, it was probably written that it was special to be behind a match in the series against Pakistan, then it was all special. '
