Mumbai: A movie on India`s victory in the 1983 Cricket World Cup may be incomplete without at least one of the members who made the win a reality -- but filmmaker Sanjay Puran Singh says it`s too early to comment on whether Kapil Dev or Sunil Gavaskar will be part of it.
BJP MP and former cricketer who was a member of the 1983 World Cup winning squad, Kirti Azad, was on Saturday allegedly detained at the Heathrow Airport in London for two hours before being allowed to board a Delhi-bound flight.
Former India captain Ravi Shastri on Wednesday took a dig at his World Cup-winning teammate Kirti Azad whose name has been removed from the BCCI`s list of one-time payment beneficiaries apparently for questioning the lack of accountability and transparency in the IPL.
The epochal triumph of the Kapil Dev-led Indian team in the 1983 cricket World Cup changed the course of game in the country forever and is perhaps the greatest-ever feat in its history, says senior batsman Sachin Tendulkar.
It was Balwinder Sandhu`s reassuring words that helped Sandeep Patil become more confident about the prospect of facing dreaded late West Indian quick Malcolm Marshall on the cricket pitch during India`s triumphant World Cup campaign in 1983, according to a soon-to-be-launched book.
