I love Dada and Jumbo

Indian Cricket saw two of its brightest stars bid farewell yesterday. Saurav Ganguly and Anil Kumble are two great individuals who brought laurels to the country. Ganguly is the most successful Indian captain ever and he was the one who taught us how to win test matches consistently. The memories of his valiant innings under fading light against Pakistan are still inside my eyes. Everytime he was dropped from the team he always had the perseverance to fight back and prove his critics wrong. He was the one who supported players like Yuvraj, Zaheer, Sehwag and Harbhajan during difficult times and now they are superstars in Indian cricket. He was not a great fielder but always made his bat talk in any situation.

Anil Kumble is the best spinner India has produced so far. In the 90s people used to switch off their television sets once Sachin got out and turned on the TV only when Kumble came to bowl. He has single handedly won several matches for India and always gave his 100% on the field. Who can forget his legendary 10 wicket haul at the Kotla and his brave entries in to the field even with injuries on many occasions? Life is not easy and these two men have overcome the hardships and have left an eternal impression in the hearts of Indian cricket fans. They are leaving on a high with a series win against the world champions and will be remembered as two men who fought fate forever.
