Rahul Dravid is keen to pick up Anil Kumble's 400th wicket

Bangalore :

How does India vice-captain Rahul Dravid want ace leg spinner Anil Kumble to claim his 400th Test victim? Well, 'The Wall' says it would be great if it's "caught Dravid bowled Kumble". "Hopefully, it will be caught Dravid bowled Kumble. That will be icing on the cake," Dravid told reporters on the sidelines of a function. He then went on to shower praise on 33-year-old Karnataka mate, who has so far taken 397 Test wickets in 84 Tests. "Anil is a fantastic cricketer and a person. He is truly legendary cricketer for Karnataka and Indian cricket. I am truly excited that he has given me a few exciting moments, watching taking him ten wickets in an innings. Hopefully, I will be part of the team in which he takes 400 wickets," Dravid added. Asked if he was eager to score a century at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, his home ground where he has never recorded a ton, Dravid said: "I am eager to score a century everywhere I play even if I scored a century before. It does not matter. We will try to do our best." Earlier, he released a book titled Casting a Spell, The Story of Karnataka Cricket authored by Vedam Jaishankar. (PTI)
