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:

 Number Bowler Team Tests
 9 Kapil Dev India 131
 9 Anil Kumble India 113
 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.
