Tweet of the fan and Anil Kumble’s Response

“OMG just spotted @anilkumble1074. We are on the same flight. Can I please get a selfie? Please…” a fan tweeted.

Kumble humbly and instantly replied to her tweet, “Sure. After take off!”

Kumble kept up his promise and took a picture with the fan after take-off. With lots of excitement, the fan tweeted,“I got the selfie! Thank you for being so gracious and indulging me @anilkumble1074. You are always going to be an inspiration.”

Earlier When the Spin Bowler Made Someone’s Day

Well, this is not the first time Kumble has won the hearts of the fans. Similar incident happened back in 2018, when Kumble was travelling in flight. The fan remembered the sportive and heroic Kumble who played in spite of his broken jaw for the Indian team against the West Indies.

“The legendary @anilkumble1074 in my BLR-MUM flight. Glanced at him once and was reminded of that game in West Indies where he bowled with a bandaged jaw. Teared up a bit. Gawwddd, I am such a sucker for cricket memories,” she tweeted.

Kumble retweeted her post which made her day,”Please feel free to come over and say hi after take-off @Mittermaniac.”

The fangirl was awestruck at the gesture of the spinner. She even got his autograph on her boarding pass which she posted on Twitter.

Anil Kumble is one of the greatest spinners of all time. His contribution to Indian cricket team is tremendous as he has taken nearly 1000 wickets in International Cricket. This 49 year old is currently the head coach of the Kings XI Punjab.
