Hilarity. The wikipedia article on Anil Kumble (as it currently stands) contains these fantastic lines on his academic career (emphasis mine, of course):

Kumble did his primary schooling at Holy Saint English School. Kumble graduated from Rashtreeya Vidyalaya College of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering in 1991-92. Anil’s studious dispensation is not without a basis in fact. Prior to his selection for the England tour, he did exceedingly well in his academics. Anil was dedicated enough to be promoted at the end of each year to the next grade.

I squee. This pleases me even more than the existence of Anil Kumble Circle.
