Named by Wisden as the Indian Cricketer of the Century in 2002, Kapil Dev led India to a memorable world cup win in 1983.
He was also India's national cricket coach between October 1999 and August 2000. 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.
Kapil also developed a fine inswinging yorker during the 1980s, which he used very effectively against tail-enders.
As a batsman, he was a natural striker of the ball who could hook and drive effectively. A naturally aggressive player, he often helped India in difficult situations by taking the attack to the opposition. ESPN Legends Series.
