In a recent Instagram Live session with former Zimbabwe pacer Pommie Mbangwa, Anil Kumble expressed how felt when being compared with Shane Warne. Kumble said, “It feels really wonderful to finish with these many wickets. I never bothered about statistics or what my average should be, I wanted to bowl the whole day and be the one to take wickets. To finish as the third-highest wicket-taker in Tests alongside Murali and Warne is very special. All three of us played in the same era, there were a lot of comparisons, I do not know why people compared me with Warne. Warne was someone really different and he was on a different plane.”
