New Delhi. Team India won the first World Cup in 1983 under the captaincy of Kapil Dev. After this we got to see many star cricketers. One of them was opener Batter Krish Srikkanth. He is known for his aggressive batting. In the final of the World Cup, he scored the highest 38 runs for the Indian team. India created history by defeating West Indies. But his son Srikant Anirudh could not achieve success like Srikanth. He was a part of the Chennai Super Kings captained by MS Dhoni in the IPL, but he could not make it to Team India.
