Kapil Dev

KAPIL DEV – Only one man in the entire history of Test cricket has reached the exemplary heights of 4000 runs and 400 wickets, the "Quadruple Double", and sits alone atop the all-rounder's Mount Everest. That one man is none other than Kapil Dev, India's most prolific all-rounder.

This former Indian cricketer is a legend in his own right. Kapil Dev captained the Indian cricket team and led them to win the 1983 Cricket World Cup. Named by Wisden as the Indian Cricketer of the Century in 2002, he was also India's national cricket coach for 10 months between October 1999 and August 2000. On 8 March 2010, Kapil Dev was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.

Kapil was a right-arm pace bowler noted for his graceful action and potent outswinger, and was India's main strike bowler for most of his career. He also developed a fine inswinging yorker during the 1980s, which he used very effectively. As a batsman, he was a natural striker of the ball. A naturally aggressive player, he often helped India in difficult situations by taking the attack to the opposition. Nicknamed The Haryana Hurricane, he represented the Haryana cricket team in domestic cricket.

Kapil retired in 1994, holding the world record for the most number of wickets taken in test cricket, a record subsequently broken by Courtney Walsh in 2000 and now by Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan. At the time of his retirement, he was also India's highest wicket taker in both major forms of cricket - tests and ODIs. He is the only player in the history of cricket to have taken more than 400 wickets and scored more than 5,000 runs in test cricket, making him one of the greatest all-rounders to have played the game. But statistics can never do justice to the charisma, the panache, and the sheer brilliance of Kapil Dev. He was not a creature of statistics, though he holds many Indian and World records. What really made Kapil Dev unique was his uncomplicated approach to the game whether batting, bowling, fielding or captaining. The secret was that he blended this approach with immense determination, pride and courage. This combination endeared him to the cricket-mad Indian crowds and made him the first true superstar of Indian cricket.
