Kapil Dev, whose international career commenced in October 1978 against Pakistan, made an indelible mark on the cricket world. One of the defining moments of his career was during the 1983 World Cup tournament, where his heroics led India to secure their maiden ICC title, triumphing over the West Indies in the final. His contributions to Indian cricket were further recognized with the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan awards. The 64-year-old bid farewell to his playing career in 1994, leaving behind an enduring legacy in the game.
