Kapils Knock-25th anniversery
June 18 may not ring a bell but Kapil Dev’s unbeaten 175 surely does! Twenty-five years ago on this same date, the then Indian captain played a stunner that has become the stuff of legend over the years.
Kapil’s masterpiece breathed life into an innings that almost suffered the death-rattle at 17 for five against Zimbabwe at Tunbridge Wells in the Prudential World Cup. In a do-or-die match, Kapil’s knock helped India score 266 for eight in 60 overs and eventually defeat Zimbabwe by 31 runs. The victory eased India’s path to the semifinals and the rest is history
Lets salute such a great cricketer for this wonderful moment today!!!....
