Anil Kumble’s first tour with the Indian cricket team didn’t start on an ideal note as the former Test cricketer landed in West Indies with his kit bag left behind at the Gatwick Airport by the British Airways.

The airline company was prompt to acknowledge the mistake and issued an apology to India’s most successful bowler on Twitter.

India reached St Kitts on Thursday for two warm-up games before the Tests begin in Antigua, on July 21.

This, however, is not the first time British Airways has messed luggage. On the receiving end last year was none other than Sachin Tendulkar.
