Kapils greatest knock: the legend of Tunbridge Wells

At first glance the Nevill Ground at Tunbridge Wells looks like a typical club ground, pretty as a picture, complete with a white picket fence, a quaint pavilion, a manual scoreboard and a thick border of trees.

But 25 years ago, this forgotten ground was witness to one of the most memorable one day innings ever when Kapil Dev rescued India with a magnificent 175 against Zimbabwe.

Ian Chappell narrates the story.

June 1983.
