Bengaluru: Several former Indian cricketers showered their wishes upon ex-Indian skipper Anil Kumble who turned 49 on Thursday.

Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar tweeted, "Wishing you a very happy birthday Anil Kumble. I've always known you as a fierce competitor and it was always a pleasure sharing the field with you."

"One of India’s greatest ever Match winners and a terrific role model. Sorry for depriving you of your second century @anilkumble1074 bhai. But I pray that you score a century in real life. Only 51 more to go.. come on ..come on Anil Bhai ! Happy Birthday," Virender Sehwag tweeted.

VVS Laxman tweeted, "Wishing you a very special birthday and a wonderful year ahead @anilkumble1074 May God shower you with blessings today and always and I am sure this special day will bring you endless joy and tons of precious memories!"

Kumble, a legendary spin bowler, took 619 wickets in 132 Tests while 337 wickets in 271 One Day Internationals (ODIs).

He also led the Indian team in the longest format for a brief period between 2007 to 2008 after Rahul Dravid stepped down as the captain.
