Photo Of The Day Ravi Shastri Sunil Gavaskar Madan Lal and others visit Kapil Dev home

New Delhi. The year 1983 can be called the most memorable for Indian cricket lovers. Under the captaincy of Kapil Dev, India then won the World Cup title for the first time. This victory is also considered important because the team defeated the 2-time world champion and the West Indies team, which is considered strong. This victory has completely changed the thinking of cricket in the country. Kapil turned out to be a big star and gradually the game became a big identity. Who does not even know a veteran batsman like Sunil Gavaskar. He is the first player to score 10,000 runs in Test cricket.

Team India is currently playing Test series from Australia. Former cricketer and former Indian team coach Shastri and Sunil Gavaskar are doing commentary in this. After the second Test ended in Delhi, both Indian veterans along with former cricketers Madan Lal and Kirti Azad reached Kapil Dev’s house. Sharing the photo on social media, Shastri wrote, “After the victory in Delhi, we went to Captain Kapil Dev’s house with our 1983 teammates. It has been a wonderful evening.
