Sachin Tendulkar and other cricketers hail ‘class of 83’ as India celebrates 39 years of 1983 World Cup win

One of the most euphoric moments for Indian cricket arrived 39 years ago at Lord’s for India, under the leadership of Kapil Dev, winning the World Cup (then, the Prudential Cup) for the first time. 

While there were very few who believed in India’s capabilities, skipper Kapil Dev was determined to make all the right noises in the third edition of the tournament. After coming through a dramatic campaign, India headed to the final day to lock horns with West Indies who were the top contenders and two-time defending champions.
