Twitter Reactions: This day that moment as Twitter cherishes Team India’s 1983 World Cup winning moments.

On this day in 1983, Kapil Dev inspired Team India to their maiden World Cup title. Coincidentally, on the same day in 1932, India attained the status of a Test playing nation. In other words, this date will be cherished forever and ever.
