There is this theory about retiring from the game; players ideally want to leave the game better than they found it when they started playing it.
In almost a very literal sense, when legends of the game bid goodbye, they pass on the baton to a young upcoming talent coming through the ranks to take the game forward and to play in the right spirit all along.
Indian cricket has been blessed in this regard as over the years, young players have made their debuts in that particular series when established players decided to move on in their careers.
Now, let us take a look at 5 such instances.
#5 Anil Kumble - Amit Mishra
There will few debates over the pedigree and impact of Anil Kumble on Indian cricket as the combative leggie dominated the Test scene well over a decade.
However, back in 2008, Kumble who was the then Indian captain was not entirely fit and had to sit out in a couple of matches which prompted the Indian selectors to try out another promising leg-spinner in Amit Mishra and the Haryana spinner made an immediate impact.
Perhaps this convinced Anil Kumble to announce his retirement from international cricket as MS Dhoni took over the mantle of the Indian team and Amit Mishra became the leg-spinner in whites.
