World Cup Special Vintage Ad

Kapil Dev lead India to its only first Cricket World Cup victory in 1983. Even prior to that eventful English summer Kapil was a hero in India. This ad from July 4, 1982 (Indrajal Comics No. 418) in a comic strip format has the Haryana Hurricane riding a BSA SLR followed by a Test victory and the Man-of-the-Match award (Agency: Rediffusion).

Looking forward to a similar Dravid ad, with the ICC World Cup in hand.

Jeetega bhai jeetega, India jeetega!
