IPL 2009: Anil Kumble: the most wicket taker, 5 wickets in an innings

Anil Kumble has drawn the attentions of the cricket fan all over the world again. He has achieved another record in Twenty20 formatted cricket beside his one-day internationals and Test cricket history. He is play on the side of Bangalore Royal Challengers. In the 2nd match of IPL 2009 season 2, BRC has its first match along with RR and BRC got wins in their first match.

In the previous article I informed wrong and mentioned that Anil Kumble has picked up 6 wickets in stead of 5 wickets of Rajasthan Royals. Wining toss Bangalore Royal Challengers elected to bat first and faced batting tragedy earlier and cashed only 133 runs from 20 over and lost wickets.

Although at the end of the first innings it seems that winning toss and batting first was not very good decision but when Rajasthan Royals batsmen admitted defeat to the Bangalore Royals Challengers’ bowlers after short breaks. Indian leg-spinner Anil Kumble preformed his best bowling figure in the tournament and has taken 5 wickets just for 5 runs. He took YK Pathan, RA Jadeja, SK Warne, MM Patel and Kamran Khan’s wicket.
