Anil Kumble’s lesson for the youth

Carlyle Laurie

Former India captain Anil Kumble has 619 Test wickets and 337 ODI wickets to his credit. Speaking to Sneha Dutta from the Telegraph, he says that it’s important to take calculated risks to succeed.

“I took calculated risks. I was always clinical and analytical in my approach with every ball I bowled, the angles and the variations. This is how I used my engineering skills, especially with the turns and trajectories of the deliveries. It isn’t easy to make choices but be happy with the choice you make. Believing in your abilities is the key, rather than pleasing anybody, and is more important than the result.”
