At a time he used to run five miles a day to build the strength to play at all, just unbelievable for most of us and the most inspiring one for the youngsters.
With many problems, still with the solid willpower, he could drag his career for another years after that operation and had taken 325 wickets from just 90 Tests.
His contribution in ODI is also good, he has taken 80 wickets from just 64 match.
We are really going to miss him for ever, RIP legend !!!!
