Indian veteran bowler Anil Kumble is celebrating his 47th birthday on 17th October but it seems that the birthday wish to Kumble from Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) did not go well for fans.
Anil Kumble hailed from Bengaluru and was born on 17th October 1970.
Wiishing in a unique way, Sehwag wrote, “On Dhanteras, wishing one of India's greatest Dhan @anilkumble1074 bhai a very happy birthday. Jai jai Shiv Shambho, Happy Birthday Jumbo !”
On the other hand, Tendulkar also poured best wishes for former spinner who become 2nd player in the world to take 10 wickets.
Wish you a very happy birthday, Kumbels! You have been an inspiration for generations together and will continue to be one. pic.twitter.com/3vqMpqhu6E— sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 17, 2017
The right-handed batsman Cheteshwar Pujara also wished Kumble and wrote, “A very happy birthday to one of the finest players & an amazing human being. Always inspiring. Have a wonderful year ahead @anilkumble1074”.

Noticiby, the cricket board earlier took on Twitter and wished in a 'cold way' and wrote, “Here’s wishing former #TeamIndia bowler @anilkumble1074 a very happy birthday”.
But later, the board has deleted its post after which the board faced backlash from Kumble's fans.
Here are the tweets that badly criticized the Indian cricket board:
Should have used "legend" word ☺— Virat Kohli (@ViratsSena) October 17, 2017
He was also coach for a year, you know? Like, last year— Deepak Sarathy (@DeepakSarathy) October 17, 2017
Such is an influence of Virat Kohli that even BCCI forgot Anil Kumble was once the Indian captain and coach, as well.— Gautam Sodhi (@GautamSodhi1) October 17, 2017
