Bangalore: Ace leg spinner Anil Kumble, who is raring to return to action in international matches after a surgery on his right shoulder, said that he was making steady progress and was happy with the improvement. ''I am happy with the progress. Even Dr Mark Fergusson (leading shoulder specialist in the world) is impressed with the improvement,'' Anil Kumble told UNI. He (Dr Fergusson) had suggested some changes in the programme and ''I have started following it.''Asked how soon he would be returning to international cricket, he said it was too early to comment on it. ''I will be meeting Dr Fergusson again in April and after that I will be in a position to decide on my return to the competitive cricket.'' Kumble, who underwent a right shoulder surgery in South Africa in January, was with Dr Fergusson for about a week before returning here on March 15. The leg spinner has been out of action for nearly six months and has been undergoing a rehabilitation programme.He would be launching his ''The Perfect 10'' memorabilia on Saturday on the eve of the first One-day International between India and Australia. Anil Kumble became only the second bowler to take all ten wickets in a Test innings, after Jim Laker of England, when he bowled India to a victory with a perfect 10 in the second innings against Pakistan on February nine, 1999. Leading cricketers were expected to take part in the function.UNI
