He took just 26.3 overs to grab those wickets and etch his name in the history books to be only the second ever to manage the feat of taking all the wickets in an innings.The first one ever to achieve the feat was English off-spinner Jim Laker who took 10 for 53 in 1956 against Australia at Old Trafford in Manchester.Twenty years ago Anil Kumble’s remarkable record helped India to a 212-run victory against arch-rivals Pakistan.Speaking about the incident, Kumble in an interview with BCCI website in 2014 had clarified that it was not something he had set out to do as a cricketer.”A ‘Perfect Ten’ isn’t something you set out to achieve as a cricketer. I would attribute the events of 7th February 1999 to destiny,” Kumble had said.Later in an exclusive with India Today at the India Today Mind Rocks 2015, Anil Kumble revealed what was going in his mind on that fateful day as he was nearing the landmark.”When I picked up my six wickets, I came back after the tea break – as I had bowled continuously from lunch to tea. At the break I sat down and thought to myself, here is a chance for me to better my previous best in Test, which was a seven-wicket haul. I went out again and then I took seven, and then eight and nine happened in two deliveries. That is when perhaps when it dawned on me and more on my teammates that I have chance to pick up all 10,” Kumble said.advertisement#OnThisDay in 1999….26.3 overs9 maidens74 runswickets! @anilkumble1074 tore through Pakistan in Delhi with a stunning 10/74, becoming just the second man after Jim Laker to take all ten wickets in a Test innings! pic.twitter.com/B8Nz2bRbeLICC (@ICC) February 7, 2019When Kumble was asked, in a later interview, how he celebrates the day when it comes around every year and if he thinks anyone can match the feat in the future, he said: “It’s one of those things which happen. It’s nice to celebrate anniversaries of cricketing milestones but if it happens it happens.””It can happen tomorrow, or 10 years down the line or it may not happen at all. I don’t think anybody gave me a chance of picking up ten wickets. It’s a very rare occurrence and I was probably privileged and blessed to be a part of that but it’s something unique,” Kumble, who has picked up a total of 619 wickets in 132 Tests, said.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_imgABB has won an order from Boliden for a three year long-term service agreement (LTSA) for its copper mine in Aitik, Sweden. The contract was awarded in Q4, 2013. Located outside of Gallivare in the far North of the country, Aitik is the largest copper mine in Sweden and one of the most efficient open-pit copper mines in the world. The ABB lifecycle management concept is a business approach that goes beyond short-term success and aims at long-term value creation for the customer. It will help Boliden to identify risks, make qualified decisions and manage available data with the aim to increase availability of ABB equipment.The agreement covers lifecycle management services, remote diagnostic services and scheduled maintenance for two gearless mill drives (GMD). In addition to this service scope, ABB will support Boliden by consulting on ongoing technology upgrades to the installed GMD and ring-geared mill drive (RMD) systems. With this advanced long-term service approach, ABB will help Boliden to extend equipment lifetime, minimise unexpected shutdowns and increase availability of the grinding systems.Boliden Aitik and ABB have a long-standing business relationship: ABB delivered not only the GMD and RMD systems, but also several drive systems, motors, transformers and the extended process control System 800xA in 2006.“Considered one of our preferred suppliers, ABB is now a long-term strategic service partner. The ABB team are reliable and highly proactive and we trust the service team to support us to increase system availability in the grinding process. The concept of one dedicated lifecycle manager facilitates our maintenance and service operations,” said Mats Nordmark, Boliden.The lifecycle management services include a single contact person responsible for all LTSA inquiries, a communication and escalation plan and progress meetings to track open LTSA issues. The agreement also covers ABB’s remote diagnostic services including Support Line (telephone 24/7 and e-mail), troubleshooting (remote emergency support), periodic maintenance reports and condition monitoring of the GMDs.Designed to support critical complex systems, the remote diagnostic services allow ABB engineers to access and troubleshoot GMD systems from anywhere in the world. They can log on to the system remotely, investigate the problems and deliver recommendations for the next step or resolve problems immediately. “Our LTSA with Boliden will enhance the overall system performance and achieve maintenance excellence, while securing predictability in maintenance costs. Our service team in Sweden and Switzerland will stay focused for the entire three years to provide Boliden with the support they need, anytime,” said Remy Lanoue, ABB Global Service Manager for Mining.last_img read more
