[RxPG] Bangalore, March 30 - Veteran leg-spinner Anil Kumble, India's highest wicket taker in one-day international cricket with 337 scalps, retired from this version of the game Friday.

Kumble, 36, announced the decision following India's abysmal performance in the ongoing World Cup in the West Indies. He played only one match to take his tally to 271 matches.

However, Kumble announced his intention to take 600 Test wickets.

'I still have some cricket left in me. I will be available for Test cricket,' said the man who has taken 547 wickets in 113 matches.

'I will see whether I can achieve 600 wickets in Test cricket,' said Kumble, only the second to take all 10 wickets in an innings of a Test match.

He achieved that world record in Pakistan's second innings at Delhi's Ferozeshah Kotla in February 1999 to spin India to a great victory.

In doing so, Kumble followed England's Jim Laker, who performed the feat against Australia at Old Trafford, Manchester, in 1956.

Kumble, who began playing cricket as a medium pacer, switched to leg-spin on advice from his elder brother.

He rose to become vice-captain of the Indian team. But shoulder and other injuries ensured that he missed many matches.

Kumble made his Test debut against England at Manchester in 1990.
