Yuvraj replied straight away and wrote: “Hahaha Sr.. You are a legend on and off the field. Kapil Paji was a different league altogether.”
Not only Yuvraj but Kapil’s efforts in the World Cup were also appreciated by former teammate Dilip Vengsarkar, who played a key role in India’s victory in England.
Kapil scored 303 runs at an average of 60.60 including an unbeaten 175 against Zimbabwe, considered as the biggest ODI innings ever, and also took 12 wickets during the tournament.
Vengsarkar told IANS on Thursday, “We defied all odds to win against all the West Indies. Kapil has been outstanding throughout the tournament.”
