Cricket legend Anil Kumble's second love -- wildlife photography -- is sure to leave you spellbound 

Cricket legend Anil Kumble's passion for photography is well known and well documented. And since his retirement from cricket, the wildlife enthusiast in Kumble has taken wings.

The 45-year-old leggie, who is on the ICC Cricket Committee, takes time out whenever possible to connect with nature.

The legend, who has been taking his camera along with him since the age of 17, shared an image he had clicked during one of his wildlife sojourns on Wednesday on a micro-blogging site. He captioned the picture, "The play of light gives a wonderful feel to this picture, making it even more beautiful." 

And boy, what a shot! The image proves Kumble is truly a legend and gives a hundred per cent in whatever he does. The composition of the photograph and the deer looking straight into the camera makes it a deadly pic.

One doesn't need to be a Kumble fan to fall in love with his second love -- wildlife photography.

The former India skipper has released a book, 'Wide Angle', showcasing his prowess behind the camera. The book is a compilation of pictures taken by Kumble during cricket tours.
