Legendary spinner Anil Kumble on Wednesday said India’s Test series win against Sri Lanka in the away tour was a tremendous achievement by the team.
“It is a tremendous victory. It is a united effort by the teammates,” he said attending a function at a school in Salem.
Hailing leadership skills of Captain Virat Kholi, who took over the reins of the team from M S Dhoni, Kumble said the Lankan win would boost his confidence further.

India clinched their first Test series victory in Sri Lanka in 22 years, recording a 117–run win in the third and final Test for a 2-1 margin earlier this month.
It was also India’s first ever overseas series triumph from a 0-1 deficit.
The last time an Indian team won a series in Sri Lanka was way back in 1993 under Mohammed Azharuddin’s leadership when they sealed the series with 1-0 scoreline.
