India is the only country to have won 60 over, 20 over and a 50 over world cup in the history of cricket. No country can ever achieve that feat. On this day 37 years ago, India won the prudential world cup in 1983 under the leadership of Kapil Dev.
On April 2nd of this year, the current Indian coach congratulated the Indian team for winning the 2011 world cup and he tagged Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar with it. The man of the series in that tourney in Yuvraj Singh replied to Ravi Shastri in a hilarious manner saying that himself and Mahendra Singh Dhoni too played the world cup as they were not tagged in the tweet.
Today, it was the turn for Yuvraj Singh to congratulate the senior team as India won the world cup 37 years ago but this time Yuvraj didn’t tag anybody. The current Indian coach who was part of the 1983 world cup tried to take revenge on Yuvraj’s comments on April 2 but Yuvraj Singh retaliated which became viral among the fans.
The historic day in Indian cricket!
The day that changed the landscape of Indian cricket. The day that instilled belief in millions of Indians that one can succeed and make a living out of cricket. The day that made cricket as a religion in India. The day when Kapil Dev led his army to a world cup in 1983 when no one gave them a chance.
On June 25, 1983, India defeated the defending champions and 2 time world cup winners in West Indies by 43 runs and went on to taste their maiden world cup triumph. This day has been etched in the heart of every Indian fan and will forever remain a special day in the history of Indian cricket.
