New Delhi, Dec 18, 2013

 

India’s first World Cup winning captain, Kapil Dev will be conferred the Col C K Nayudu Lifetime Achievement award for the year 2013 at the annual Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) awards function, the Board’s announced today.

 

The award’s committee comprising BCCI President N Srinivasan, Sanjay Patel (Hony. Secretary) and Ayaz Memon (Senior Journalist) met in Chennai today to nominate a winner and unanimously zeroed in on the legendary all-rounder’s name.

 

“Mr. Kapil Dev Nikhanj will receive the Col C K Nayudu Lifetime Achievement Award, which comprises a trophy, citation and a cheque for Rs 25 lakhs, at the BCCI Awards Ceremony for the year 2012-13, the details of which will be announced soon,” the Indian cricket board’s secretary Sanjay Patel said in a release today.

 

One of the greatest all-rounders of all-time, Dev played 131 Tests for India taking 434 wickets, record at one time. He was the first player to complete 5,000 runs and 400 wickets in Tests. He played 225 ODIs, in which he took 253 wickets and scored 3,783 runs.

 

His most memorable contribution to Indian cricket was the victory in the 1983 World Cup. As captain, Dev led from the front, with bat, ball and in the field.

 

Dev, who had joined the now-defunct Indian Cricket League (ICL) back in 2007, was banned by the BCCI for being a part of unsanctioned league.

 

But last year Dev and the Indian cricket board buried the hatchet after the former cricketer resigned from the ICL. The Board welcomed him back with immediate effect disbursing his one-time benefit payment of Rs 1.5 crore.

 

The Col. C K Nayudu Lifetime Achievement Award, named after India’s first Test captain, is given to individuals whose contribution to Indian cricket, on and off the field, is unparallel.

 

 

Previous winners of the award are:

 

1994 – Lala Amarnath

 

1995 – Syed Mushtaq Ali

 

1996 – Capt. Vijay Hazare

 

1997 – K N Prabhu

 

1998 – P R Umrigar

 

1999 – Col. Hemachandra Adhikari

 

2000 – Subhash Gupte

 

2001 – Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi
