Indian Premier League teams – Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rajasthan Royals, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Chennai Super Kings, and Delhi Capitals also remembered the historic day when Kapil Dev-led India defeated two-time winners West Indies by 43 runs.
“There’s just so much pride that we as Indians feel each time we look at this image #OnThisDay in 1983, @therealkapildev and his #TeamIndia earned a special place in cricketing history with a World Cup triumph at Lord’s,” Delhi Capitals tweeted while sharing the photo of Kapil Dev being presented with the World Cup trophy.

Batting first in the final at Lords, India were bowled out for 183 runs in 54.5 overs. Kris Srikkanth top-scored with 38. Considering the talent in the Windies’ ranks, the total looked fairly chaseable, however, fine bowling by India’s attack helped skittle their opponents out for just 140.
Mohinder Amarnath and Madan Lal were the stars with the ball, taking three wickets apiece as India recorded a 43-run victory.
