A vital day for Indian cricket, and an awful amaze for West Indies. Most individuals thought the Windies simply needed to turn up to win the World Cup last at Lord’s, a feeling that was fortified when India attempted to 183 full scale. West Indies then motored to 50 for 1, with Viv Richards scything seven fours in a 28-ball 33, yet the match turned when he hoicked Madan Lal high buzzing around and was eminently gotten by Kapil Dev. The dramatization of 57 for 3 soon transformed into an emergency at 76 for 6, as India’s medium-pacers wobbled West Indies to death, and the cricket world gradually understood that a massive stun was on the cards. The Man of the Match was Mohinder Amarnath, for his 26 and 3 for 12. The most noteworthy score in the entire match was Kris Srikkanth’s 38.
