India‘s Kapil Dev took 5 wickets for 125 against England in 1982 to earn his name on the Honours Board, but Lord’s is also a special place for him because it was the scene of India’s World Cup triumph in 1983. From 1977 to 1983, Kapil remained comparable to the top all-rounders of his era, a group that included Ian Botham, Imran Khan and Richard Hadlee. He could hold his own in that formidable group, with both bat and ball, and in the outfield he was the best of the lot. Yes, apart from being the best fast bowler ever produced by India and one of the most talented lower order batsmen, Kapil was also among the most versatile fielders of the country. Kapil Dev bowls his first ball in Test cricket in 1978
