India will become a dominant force under Dhoni: KumbleNovember 3rd, 2008 - 6:24 pm ICT by IANS
Bangalore, Nov 3 (IANS) A day after taking retirement from international cricket, Anil Kumble said Indian cricket will soon become a dominant force in world cricket under Mahendra Singh Dhoni.Addressing the media at Kreeda, his Bangalore residence Monday morning, Kumble looked relaxed after bringing down the curtains on his 18-year-long glorious career at the Ferozshah Kotla in New Delhi, Sunday.
“I have taken the decision at the right time. The Indian team is doing well and soon we will see them dominating world cricket under Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is perfectly placed to take the charge,” the 38-year-old Kumble told reporters here.
The leg-spinner said he was proud of his leadership skills and did not think of continuing playing just because he was the captain of the team.
“I have enjoyed my stint as a captain because I always gave my 100 percent and I am proud of what I have achieved as a captain. People expect a person to do the same role again and again. But it does not happen even in Bollywood. When Amitabh Bachchan started his career he did different roles and now he does something different,” he said.
