<p>After all, in 1983, Kapil’s Devils defeated the then-dominant West Indies in the ODI Cricket World Cup final at Lord’s, despite posting an improbable total of 183, and they took home the coveted trophy.<br />
Go back to Ahmedabad 2023, where Team India was only able to score 240 runs thanks to an oppressive bowling assault launched by the Australians.</p>
<p>Like after the first innings of the upcoming World Cup Final, forty years ago, as a generation learned from ’83, India too had lost the toss and was requested to bat first by the West Indies, who bowled out their less-fancied opponents for 183, plunging Indian supporters into a sullen vortex.</p>
<p>But in the second inning, the side captained by Kapil Dev took the lead in the game.</p>
<p>Like the quartet of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and K.L. Rahul, Krishnamachari Srikkanth, Mohinder Amarnath, and Sandip Patil were the leading scorers for the Indian team.</p>
<p>And Roger Binny, the current president of the BCCI, took the game-changing wicket in 1983 as he was seeing the action at Ahmedbad from the VIP enclosure. Nishant Dahiya wrote the article for Roger Binny in ’83.</p>
<p>Fans are hoping that Mohammed Shami can replicate his heroics against New Zealand, as the trophy seems to be edging out of India’s hands.</p>
<p>Can he perform a Binny, as can Ravindra Jadeja on home soil?</p>
<p>Fans are holding out hope that, for just one more hour without dew, Indian spinners may pull off the incredible, as Travis Head thwarts the Indian onslaught.</p>
<p>Can India, as Kapil’s Devils did in 1983, wrest victory from the jaws of defeat? Fans may always look to ’83’ to give themselves something to shout about if it doesn’t happen.</p>
