Former veteran all-rounder Kapil Dev’s eyes became moist on the death of fellow player Yashpal Sharma. Kapil, who was the captain of the 1983 World Cup winning team, said that I cannot believe the death of Yashpal. Kapil said in a conversation with a channel, ‘I still feel that this is not true. I don’t understand. We just met last week and were very good-natured. We were all playing sports together. We cannot fight with the will of God. Yes, you will definitely ask God today not to do this.
Yashpal was the most successful after Kapil
Yashpal had performed brilliantly in the 1983 World Cup and won a lot of accolades. He had scored 240 runs in the tournament at an average of 34.28. He is best remembered for his brilliant batting in the first match of the World Cup. He played a very important innings of 89 runs in 120 balls against West Indies. This win in Manchester gave India the confidence to move on and win the tournament. Yashpal was the second highest run-scorer for India in the tournament after Kapil Dev.
