    Kumble certainly has caerird himself on and off the field remarkably well. But he comes from an “old” Bangalore…..shy, quiet, polite and reserved. I’ll be amazed if Bangalore has many more players with the conduct of Dravid or Kumble anymore.Mangesh, Minal….yes, Kumble bowling with a broken jaw was more than inspiring. I can’t remember when Kumble was handed the ball and he didin’t come charging in with all his heart. Quite a performer. And his performance abroad actually isn’t nearly as bad as it’s made out it. In fact it’s better than the overseas record of the famed quartet, or Harbajan or any other spinner from India.Too bad about Ajit Agarkar though…..he’s given few reasons to believe that he’ll really “arrive” as a super cricketer. Still….he’s still in the team….oh well.
