The big surprise at Indian cricket Captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood star Anushka Sharma's wedding reception in Mumbai on Tuesday, December 26, was Anil Kumble's presence at the event.

Remember how Kumble -- then India's coach -- and the skipper fell out, leading to the legendary legspinner's exit and the arrival of the Kohli-friendly Ravi Shastri at the helm of affairs?

We always know Anil was a class act so we aren't surprised that he flew into Mumbai from Bengaluru with wife Chethana to give the couple their best wishes.
