Indian cricket

These are a few of my favourite things ...

Kapil Dev, India captain in 1983 and from 1985-87, recalls his best and worst moments while speaking to Sportstar. From travelling on on a rickety scooter with Ashok Malhotra and Sushil Kapoor to reach far flung grounds, to that unforgettable 1983 World Cup victory to the six that gave a great impetus to the game in Pakistan, Kapil shares his memories on a legendary career.

That glorious day — June 25, 1983 — remains close to my heart the most. There have been some other great deeds too, but nothing to match the feeling of holding the World Cup in my hands. Sometimes I feel it is yet to sink in even today. That day will always be the most important day of my cricket life.
