Deva’s greatest achievement came in 1983 when he captained the Indian cricket team to their first ever World Cup victory. India defeated the heavily favored West Indies team in the final, which is considered to be one of the greatest upsets in the history of cricket. This win gave a huge boost to Indian cricket and cemented Kapil Dev’s place in Indian cricket history.

Kapil Dev is widely considered as India’s greatest fast bowler and all-rounder. He is a formidable player who would have undoubtedly been recognized as the best all-rounder in the world if he had played during a different era, not competing with the likes of Imran Khan, Ian Botham, and Richard Hadlee. Despite this, his performances were so impressive that in 2002 he was voted as India’s Cricketer of the Century, surpassing even the greats such as Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar.
Kapil Dev as Indian Coach

Kapil resigned as coach and announced his departure from the game, feeling disheartened by the betting scandal. However, he made a comeback after a period of relative obscurity when he was named as the Indian Cricketer of the Century by Wisden.

What is a no-ball in Test cricket?
A no-ball in Test cricket is an illegal delivery made by the bowler. This can occur for a variety of reasons, such as the bowler overstepping the crease or bowling a delivery that is above waist height.
What are the consequences of a no-ball in Test cricket?
When a no-ball is called in Test cricket, the umpire will signal a no-ball and the opposing team will be awarded one extra run. The batsman also cannot be dismissed on a no-ball delivery, except on the case of handling the ball, hitting the ball twice, obstructing the field and hitting the ball with a thrown object.
Can a no-ball in Test cricket be called after the ball has been played?
No, a no-ball in Test cricket can only be called before the ball is played by the batsman. If the umpire realizes that a no-ball was bowled after the ball has been played, the no-ball will not be called and the delivery will stand as a legal one.
How many no balls Can a bowler bowl?
In cricket, there is no set limit to the number of no-balls a bowler can bowl in a match or series. However, if a bowler consistently bowls no-balls, they may be taken out of the attack by the captain or replaced by another bowler. Additionally, if a bowler bowls too many no-balls, it could result in the opposing team being awarded extra runs, potentially giving them an advantage in the match. It is considered as a discipline issue for the bowler and the team if a bowler bowls too many no-balls.
