We are sure that this opportunity to witness the Indian team live in action would really excite fans across the country”

Anil Kumble is perhaps amongst the most astute, deep -thinking cricketers that the game has ever seen. His team selections would surely reflect his deep understanding of the game – we are all excited to determine if he has included a surprise or two.”
