Anil Kumble Takes 600 Wickets in Test Cricket

Anil Kumble has become the third bowler in International Test Cricket history to cross the boundaries of 600 wickets, following the other two spinners Shane Warne and Muttiah Murlitharan.

Kumble told ABC:
"It means a lot, you never think you will reach 600 wickets when you start to
play but being in a group with Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan is special.

To be the first Indian to reach 600 is a huge moment for me. It is
important that we keep setting new benchmarks for new cricketers to follow."
