Indian cricketer, often considered one of the greatest cricketers of India. He captained the Indian cricket team which won the 1983 Cricket World Cup. Kapil Dev is considered as one of the greatest all-rounders of all time. He was also India's national cricket coach for 10 months between October 1999 and August 2000.

Dev was a right-arm pace bowler noted for his graceful action and potent outswinger, and was India's main strike bowler for most of his career. He also developed a fine inswinging yorker during the 1980s, which he used very effectively against tail-enders. As a batsman, he was a natural striker of the ball who could hook and drive effectively. A naturally aggressive player, he often helped India in difficult situations by taking the attack to the opposition. Nicknamed The Haryana Hurricane, he represented the Haryana cricket team in domestic cricket. He retired in 1994, holding the world record for the most number of wickets taken in Test cricket, a record subsequently broken by Courtney Walsh in 2000. At the time, he was also India's highest wicket taker in both major forms of cricket, Tests and ODIs. He is the only player in the history of cricket to have taken more than 400 wickets (434 wickets) and scored more than 5,000 runs in Tests, making him one of the greatest all-rounders to have played the game. On 8 March 2010, Kapil Dev was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.

He married Romi Bhatia in 1980 and they had a daughter, Amiya Dev, on 16 January 1996.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from Straight from the Heart: An Autobiography by Kapil Dev (MacMillan, 2004): "For me it all started in Chandigarh, a small town nestling in the foothills of the Himalayas. I was born on a cold winter morning. My mother, who is a simple woman, could not read the time but she knew it was early in the morning. The date, 6th January 1959, was thankfully recorded because a cousin of mine was born on the same day, around the same time and with the same name!"

Ashish Seth by email: Astrological Biographies: Seventeen Examples of Predictive Insights by Bepin Behari, p. 265 : "Kapil Dev was born on 6th January 1959, in the early hours of morning at 5:30 a.m. at Chandigarh."
