39 years since Indian team’s first world title

25 June 1983. One of the most unexpected yet wonderful days in the history of Indian cricket. It was on this day that Indian captain Kapil Dev lifted the World Cup in the gallery of Lord’s, the home of cricket, and the golden chapter of Indian cricket began. It was a moment of great pride and excitement for all Indians. 39 years of this incident have been completed today. But the memories of this glorious victory are still fresh in the minds of many.

In fact, when the Indian team left for England for this World Cup, the team itself was probably not very confident. The main reason for this was poor performances in the last two World Cups. But Kapil Dev’s Jigarbaz Shiledars must have something different in mind.

The Indian team started the World Cup with an unexpected performance. In the very first match on June 9, they defeated the mighty West Indies by 34 runs and registered a winning opening. Then in the next match, they easily beat Zimbabwe by 5 wickets. With these two consecutive victories, all the teams were seriously aware of India’s challenge. But the Indian team played in the next two matches as if they should not see their own victory. In these two matches, they suffered resounding defeats against Australia and West Indies.

But due to this defeat, the color of the group increased even more. The Indian team needed to win the next two matches to keep the challenge alive. Their next match was against Zimbabwe. This match was remembered for Indian captain Kapil Dev’s innings. Kapil, who came to bat in the condition of 17 for 5, then batted like neither past nor future. His fantastic innings of 175 not only helped India win the match but also gave them a boost for the next matches. After this, the Indian team never looked back.

In the last league match, when a win was mandatory, the Indian team robbed the Kangaroos of pride. The Australians, who believed that India was like a tree or a leaf, had to watch their team crumble. The Indian team, who entered the semi-finals with this victory, faced England. But England also did not learn from Australia’s defeat. They also made the mistake of underestimating the Indian team. In this match, the Indian team won by 6 wickets and entered the final by defeating England in their home country.

But when they reached the final, suddenly everyone realized that the Indian team was very close to making history. However, experts predicted that the strong West Indies team, which returned to form in the final, will not allow India to cook the dal.

The same happened in the first innings of the final. India’s batting was bundled out for just 183 runs in front of West Indies’ artillery. At this time, many Indian fans had given up hope of winning. But Kapil Dev and company had something else in mind. The bowlers, who were billed as medium pace bowlers, destroyed the seemingly invincible West Indies batting for 130 runs. After Mohinder Amarnath appealed for lbw against last West Indies batsman Michael Holding, the umpire raised his finger momentarily and India’s historic World Cup win was sealed.

At that time, the spectators present at the Lord’s ground were stunned, but the victory was celebrated with unprecedented jubilation even in the home country of India. In many ways this title was special for India. This victory also laid the foundation of the Indian team’s dominance in the cricket world today. So, it is certain that the sweetness of this victory will be sung not only today but for many generations to come.
