Anil Kumble, by dismissing Graeme Smith on Friday, equalled a world record of different sort. This was the ninth occasion when Kumble dismissed a batsman in nervous 90s. He now shares the record of dismissing most batsmen in 90s alongwith another Indian Kapil Dev.
Bowlers who have dismissed most batsmen in 90s:
|6||Malcolm Marshall||West Indies||81|
|6||M Muralitharan||West Indies||110|
Kumble seems to have a liking for South African batsmen as four of his victims are from that country only.
