Former World Cup winner Kapil Dev was not invited to IND vs AUS Final, know the reason

World Cup 2023: Former India captain Kapil Dev had claimed on Sunday that he was not invited for the World Cup final between the host team and Australia. Kapil, who led India to its first ODI World Cup title in 1983, said that he wanted to go to the match with his fellow players.

Why did Kapil Dev not go to watch the World Cup final match?

Kapil Dev told ‘ABP News’, “I was not invited there.” They didn’t call me so I didn’t go. It is just that simple. I wanted the entire 1983 team to be there with me but I think it’s such a big tournament and people are so busy with responsibilities that sometimes they forget.

Many people were invited to watch the match

Among the former captains of India present at the Narendra Modi Stadium was Sourav Ganguly, who was invited as the former President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Well, BCCI has a rule that it invites former presidents and officials. Big Bollywood celebrities like Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh were present to watch the match. Great badminton player Prakash Padukone was also present in the stands.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh reacted

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh reacted by saying, “It is completely unacceptable that the cricket body did not invite Kapil Dev for the World Cup final in Ahmedabad. Like Bedi, Kapil Dev is also known for expressing his views openly and a few months ago he had openly supported the protesting women wrestlers.
