They couldn’t accept the fact that they had lost to us, some of them came to our dressing room later with champagne bottles: Mohinder Amarnath recalls India’s win vs WI in 1983 WC final | Cricket News – Times of India

June 25 is a date no hardcore Indian cricket fan can ever forget. It's a day that will always be remembered as one on which India won the biggest prize in world cricket - the World Cup - 39 years ago, on June 25, 1983. And that achievement became a watershed moment in Indian cricket, propelling it further and taking it from strength to strength. There are multiple stories and anecdotes of course that we have all heard and enjoyed over the years about India's incredible achievement - from complete underdogs to world champions. A recent Bollywood movie, starring Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev and called 83, recapped the journey of Team India in that edition of the World Cup and how they went on to beat the mighty West Indies, who had won the two previous editions in 1975 and 1979, in the fina...

On this day in 1983, India ended West Indies’ 8-year unbeaten World Cup run | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: On this day in 1983, the Indian cricket team made history by ending West Indies' unbeaten run at the World Cup events that lasted for eight years by defeating them by 34 runs at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in their group B tie of the tournament. West Indies were the favourites heading into the match and the tournament in general. Not much was expected from India, whose run during the first two World Cups consisted of only one win and five losses. On the other hand, the Windies had won the 1975 and 1979 World Cups. Put to bat first by the Windies, India were off a shaky start, losing their openers Sunil Gavaskar and Kris Srikkanth by the time team's score was 46. Mohinder Amarnath and Sandeep Patil tried to resist the brutal bowling attack of their opposition, but their innings ende...

Women’s World Cup: Important to continue playing like we did against West Indies, says Harmanpreet Kaur

Delighted by India’s performance in the win against West Indies, vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur said the team is looking for a repeat performance against a struggling England side in their ICC Women’s World Cup league match here on Wednesday. India had dished out a splendid all-round performance against an in-form West Indies side to notch up a dominating 155-run win in their previous outing. “I think for us, (it is) very important that the way we performed in the last game we continue that, rather than thinking about what is (are) your negatives and what is (are) your positive points,” Kaur said at the pre-match media conference.

ICC Women’s World Cup: West Indies fined for slow over-rate against India | Cricket News – Times of India

HAMILTON: The West Indies players were fined 40 per cent of their match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate during the ICC Women's ODI World Cup match against India here.

No insecurities, no external pressure; focus on role clarity and bench strength: Rohit lays out his vision

“I really can’t tell you anything about his overseas place and why he doesn’t find it or why he is in the XI. I honestly have no idea as I wasn’t part of the selection at that point so I can’t really tell you what happened there and why was he left out or why was he played and those kind of stuff.” India captain Rohit Sharma was responding after the Mohali Test to a question on R Ashwin often not getting a spot in the playing XI on away tours in recent times. It was a clear line in the sand from the skipper, that he couldn’t comment with any reasonable clarity about such calls that had been made in Kohli’s time.
