    When the chips of Indian team were down, Kapil Dev said “Team if this is not a winning total it’s definitely a fighting total” one of the popular quotes of all time.

    However, the Indian bowling exploited the weather and the pitch conditions perfectly to bow out the best batting line-up of the era for 140 from 52 over’s in return, winning by 43 runs and completing one of the most stunning upsets in cricket history.

    Amarnath and Madan Lal (3-31) each took three wickets and the memorable moment was the sight of Kapil Dev running a great distance (about 18-20 yards) to tke a catch to dismiss Richards, the West Indies top scorer with 33 from 28 balls.

    Amarnath was awarded Man of the match for his all –round performance, conceding just 12 runs from his seven over’s while taking 3 wickets, In 1983 no ‘Man of the Series’ awarded.
