Off-spinner Ravi Ashwin achieved the feat when he dismissed Mominul Haque during the 1st day of the Indore Test.
While Kumble leads the list with 350 Test wickets in India, Harbhajan Singh is not too far from Ashwin, having picked up 265 scalps at home.
Earlier, Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque won the toss on his captaincy debut and opted to bat on a spicy surface in Indore.
