However, the indian reporters who went to england to cover the world cup matches underestimated the indian team, saying that the West indian team would defeat India.

Then the next wicket fell within minutes of kapil dev taking the field. In the end, kapil dev fought alongside the bowlers. A batsman, he was not that way that day. He was relaxed.
