Kapil greets ‘1983 family’
A week after undergoing angioplasty, Kapil Dev on Thursday greeted his former India teammates from the 1983 World Cup, saying he is “feeling very good” and is eager to meet everyone soon.
The 61-year-old underwent the procedure after suffering a heart attack.
“My ‘Family 83’. The weather is very pleasant and I am very eager to meet you all. I am feeling very good. Thanks to all for your wishes and concern,” Kapil, dressed in a purple T-shirt, said in a video which he shared with his 1983 teammates.
“I am hoping that we all will meet pretty soon. I will try to meet you all as early as possible. We have approached the end of the year and I am confident that we will have a great start to next year. Love you all,” he added.
Kapil had led India to its maiden World Cup victory in 1983. The former captain is the only player to claim over 400 wickets (434) and accumulate more than 5,000 runs in Tests.
