During World Cup 1983, Kapil Dev played an audacious knock of 175 runs against Zimbabwe when Team India was struggling after they lost their first five wickets at a score of 17 runs. The former skipper rescued his side at that time from getting humiliated in the mega event. Also, in the past Sunil Gavaskar, the former Indian batsman had referred that inning as ‘the greatest ever’.

On Monday, Ranveer Singh shared a still with his fans in which he is seen playing the all-time trademark shot of Kapit Dev “NATRAJ SHOT“. From the picture, it was easily visible that the Indian actor has left no stone unturned in order to get into his character. It looked quite similar to the way the former batsman used to play in his time.
