Legend Kapil Dev wasn’t invited for World Cup final

The history of Indian cricket has not been as easy as it is today. In 1983, the Indian team defeated the West Indies to win the One Day Cricket World Cup for the first time. That year, under the leadership of Kapil Dev, India first established itself in world cricket by going as an underdog team to the tournament. However, the World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev himself was not invited to the final of the World Cup 2023 held in India this year. This is a very shameful act by BCCI officials towards the former captain.

BCCI organized several events to make this year’s World Cup memorable. Even the captains of all World Cup-winning teams are invited to the finals of the tournament. On the other hand, India faced Australia in the World Cup final this year. So every cricket lover wanted to watch this match live at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. However, in the meantime, the World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev complained that he was not invited to this match.

In a recent interview with the media, he said, “I have not been invited to the World Cup final between India and Australia. Quite a simple equation, they didn’t call me so I didn’t go. I wanted the entire 83 World Cup-winning team to be with me. I think with such a big event, the organizers are busy with various responsibilities, sometimes they forget.”

After this, there was so much criticism in the cricket community. On the other hand, in the final of the World Cup, the Indian team batted first and gave Australia a target of 240 runs. For India, Virat Kohli scored 54 off 63 balls and KL Rahul scored 66 off 107 balls. In the second innings, the pair of Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne easily chased the total. As a result, Australia won the prestigious trophy for a record sixth time.
