India’s World Cup win – 25 years hence

This year marks the 25th year of India’s historic World Cup cricket win. Some of the vivid memories from that win remain etched in memory – Sandhu’s banana inswinger to get rid of Greenidge, Kapil’s catch to get rid of Richards who was in a hurry to finish off the match, Mohinder Amarnath’s precious MoM performance and of course, Kapil lifting the Prudential Cup. At that time, we didn’t have the privilege of watching it on TV. But thanks to YouTube, we can at least relive the moments. Here are the complete highlights.

    Pretty cool – it is still thrilling to watch and enjoy each of these key moments.

    Actually, we did watch this on TV. I actually remember walking out when India were 6 down and then hearing that we were 7 down. Once the game was over, we came out to the streets. Folks were celebrating in groups further away. All of 25 years ago!

    Great moment in cricket history – paved the way for SL and Pak to win their cups later on.
