Kapil Dev inducted into Legends Club ‘Hall of Fame’
New Delhi : Another feather added to World cup winning captain Kapil Dev’s hat when he was inducted into Legends Club ‘Hall of Fame’. The all-rounder was inducted in presence of former India captains Ajit Wadekar, Sunil Gavaskar and Nari Contractor at the Cricket Club of India.
Dev, who led India to the emphatic World Cup victory in 1983, is considered as the country’s greatest all-rounder. He was presented with a citation by former India player and Legends Club President Madhav Apte.
Gavaskar, who was the first batsman to score 10,000 runs in Test cricket, was also presented a citation by Wadekar. He was already inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame on July 11, 2013.
While Dev was the first Indian to take 400 Test wickets, Gavaskar was the first Indian batsman to score.
