India’s first World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev didn’t take James Anderson’s name, but the reference clearly was to the England spearhead over his row with Ravindra Jadeja.
The charge and counter-charge are now being handled legally by the International Cricket Council.
Speaking to The Telegraph, at Lord’s, on Thursday, Kapil added: “Something did happen, which is sad. You want people to talk of cricket, not of off the field happenings.”
