Two of India’s leading wicket-takers Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh have a pleasant conversation of Twitter, where Kumble agrees to give Harbhajan some of the old pictures for the off-spinner’s autobiography. Kumble is known to have a liking for photography as he was always seen with a camera during the playing days, clicking pictures of any major landmark his team would achieve.  Kumble first posts a nostalgic picture of his former teammates, including Harbhajan celebrating, after the leg-spinner had picked up his 500th Test scalp. Seen around Kulble are Harbhajan, Virender Sehwag and Irfan Pathan. Looking at the picture Harbhajan comments Epic pic Anil Bhai.. You have serious collection of old pictures @anilkumble1074 would need some for my book. READ: Anil Kumble wants to restore balance between bat and ball

Kumble and Harbhajan terrorised many batsmen around the world for over a decade and still share a good relationship off the field as well. Kumble replied saying,” Sure @harbhajan_singh your book will be one interesting read!!! READ: BCCI welcome Rahul Dravid’s appointment, Anil Kumble’s extension in ICC Cricket Committee

Kumble is India’s leading wicket-taker in Tests and oOne-Day Internationals (ODI). He has also led India in the longest format, including the tour of Australia in 2008, where Harbhajan was banned for a Test after he allegedly made racist comments against Australia all-rounder Andrew Symonds.  Kumble and the entire team stood behind Harbhajan during that time and also threatened to pull out of the tour. But India continued and put on a good fight, narrowly losing the Test series, but went on to win the ODI series under the leadership of MS Dhoni.

Harbhajan’s chances in the Indian team have dropped of late, but is an integral part of the Mumbai Indians (MI) team in the Indian Premier League (IPL), where Kumble was a mentor at one point of time.
