Former cricketer and 1983 World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev has been impressed with the way Virat Kohli has matured ever since he has taken over the role of a captain of the Indian one-day international team.
The film '83 brings alive the epic 1983 Cricket World Cup win of India against West Indies on screen and plans to recreate the winning moment at the iconic match at the Lord’s Cricket Ground in England, where then captain Kapil Dev lifted India’s first ever World Cup.
With everyone holding different opinions on MS Dhoni and his inclusion in the team even with youngsters like Rishabh Pant in the fray, Kapil Dev believes it should be left up to the veteran to decide when to retire.
Kapil Dev appeared on the Kapil Sharma show alongwith his 1983 World Cup-winning teammates Mohinder Amarnath, Sandeep Patil, Dilip Vengsarkar, Krishnamachari Srikkanth, Roger Binny, Kirti Azad, Madan Lal, Syed Kirmani, Balwinder Sandhu and Yashpal Sharma.
What could have been better than an event organised by the Ranveer Singh starrer film '83 makers with those 14 men under one roof who gave the nation a reason to celebrate back in the year 1983, when the Indian cricket team led by Kapil Dev lifted the World Cup in England.
