It's been 18 long years since Anil Kumble made his debut in 1990. There were 132 Tests thereafter, 619 wickets and a career to die for. A career that has had many ups, a few downs... and one common factor: a quiet entry and an equally quiet exit. There is no hullabaloo about Kumble's retirement whatsoever. The decision was made after considerable deliberation and less consultation. And before you could blink your eyes, it was time to say goodbye to the ace leg spinner.

'The body gave me the decision and the injury helped it'
Anil Kumble says he did not decide to retire because of the criticisms. 'The body was asking me a question everyday and I didn't think it was possible for me now to go through the grind of Test cricket.'
