Sehwag, in Unique Style, Wishes Anil Kumble on His 47th Birthday

The incessant pouring of flaks on the twitter forced the board to delete the tweet.

Indian veteran bowler Anil Kumble is celebrating his 47th birthday on 17th October but it seems that the birthday wish to Kumble from Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) did not go well for fans.

"Such is an influence of Virat Kohli that even BCCI forgot Anil Kumble was once the Indian captain and coach, as well", said one Twitter user. With 956 wickets, Kumble is third in the all-time top global wicket takers list.

Among his 619 Test wickets, the most famous 10 came in one single innings in a Test match against Pakistan at Delhi's Feroz Shah Kotla ground.

He is an global icon and also fulfilled the role of a successful captain during his playing days.

"Umm bowler? Wasn't he also Captain and Coach and is India's leading Wicket-taker?" responded television journalist and author Digvijay Singh Deo on Twitter.

This year, Kumble is sharing his birthday with the auspicious Hindu festival "Dhanteras".

Kumble's tenure as coach was highly successful for India as the team clinched the No. 1 spot in Test cricket and reached the Champions Trophy finale.

India have since appointed Ravi Shastri as the team's coach and have successfully completed a tour of Sri Lanka apart from beating Australia in home ODIs.
