Kumble refused to bowl
Seeing the strong batting of Shahrukh Khan in the nets, Anil Kumble, a veteran bowler of his time, refused to bowl in front of him. Kumble said, ‘I have told him (Shahrukh Khan) not to hit too much straight shot. I am not going to try to catch the ball here at all. Now I am very old and my body does not support me. That is why Shahrukh bats like that, according to that it is certain that I will not bowl him in the nets.
Happy to hear praise from Shahrukh Kumble
Meanwhile, Shahrukh Khan is also very happy to hear the praise from his head coach and great spinner Kumble (Anil Kumble).

With all these, I am getting to learn a lot about the game.
