On this day back in 2007, the cricketing fraternity came to know that there's more to Anil Kumble than his leg-spinning wizardry. The former Indian captain put England to the sword, not with the ball but with the bat. He scored his maiden international century against England at The Oval, a stoic rearguard that helped India draw level in the third and final Test. The stalemate thus ensured the visitors take the honours home 1-0 in the three-match series.
