Kapil Dev: The Master of All Crafts
India's greatest all-rounder Kapil Dev was born on 6 January 1959 in Chandigarh. Kapil, who captained India when they won the 1983 World Cup, was named by Wisden as the Indian Cricketer of the Century in 2002; he was also India's national cricket coach for 10 months between October 1999 and August 2000.
Nicknamed The Haryana Hurricane, Kapil is the only player to take more than 400 wickets and score more than 5,000 runs in Test cricket. Kapil has a long list of achievements to his name during his illustrious career, but the 138-ball 175* he scored against Zimbabwe in the 1983 World Cup, is one of the great knocks in ODIs.
On 8 March 2010, Kapil was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.
Kapil was the only Asian founding member of Laureus Foundation in 2000. Ian Botham and Viv Richards were the other two cricketers on the founding member council of 40. Steve Waugh was added to the Academy members in 2006 when it was expanded from 40 to 42.
