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.
The World Cup victory in 1983 is cherished as the turning point in the cricket-crazy nation of India. Team India went into the tournament as the underdogs, and winning the tournament was a distant dream for many.
In addition, their record in the previous two editions of the World Cup was bizarre. However, defying all odds, Kapil Dev inspired Team India to a World Cup win; a moment that would be cherished for eternity.
MOST CHERISHED MOMENTS OF WORLD CUP 1983:
- Kapil Dev’s fabulous backward running catch in the finale to dismiss Sir Viv Richards
- Mohinder Amarnath’s economical bowling. He won the MoM award in the semi-finals and finals.
- Roger Binny with 18 wickets emerged as the highest wicket-taker of the tournament.
- Kapil Dev’s 175 not out against Zimbabwe, after coming in to bat at 17-5
India Today described the campaign wonderfully in their article.
Starting as unfancied underdogs with London bookies offering 50:1 odds against them, the Indian eleven steered a triumphant if somewhat erratic course to a nail-biting cliff-hanger of a final against the seemingly invincible West Indies, undefeated in one-day cricket and winners of the previous two World Cup titles in 1975 and 1979 – India Today

Meanwhile, the 2019 World Cup is moving to its business end and it’s happening at the same place, England.
We hope this day acts as a motivation for the Indian Cricket Team. In conclusion, We wish Virat and his team, the very best to recreate the winning scenes on the 14th of July at Lords.
