Kapil Dev has been an inspirational personality in Indian cricket over the years and his records are always to be remembered. The great all-rounder had made the country proud by leading the Indian team to victory in the 1983 World Cup by defeating a mighty West Indian team in the all important final.

Other than that his contributions to the game of cricket are quite a thing to be proud of. So, as a mark of respect to the legend the country is set to honour the iconic personality by adding his wax statue at the Madame Tussauds Museum, New Delhi as he is set to join the other sports icons there.

Apart from the statue of the cricketer being placed, there would be a special dedicated area for the fans where they will get a chance to test their cricket skills. Kapil’s figure would be the latest celebrity entrant in the Madame Tussauds Delhi.

A group of world-renowned artists took over 300 measurements of the legend to start with the process of creating his figure as Kapil met the Madame Tussauds team.

“I am thankful to my fans who have paved my way to Madame Tussauds. I am honored to be part of the attraction and to be positioned among legends. The sitting session was an unforgettable experience and I am looking forward to seeing my figure. I have lived and breathed cricket all my life and today I wish every cricketer a successful journey,” Kapil was quoted by CricketNext as saying.

Anshul Jain, General Manager and Director, Merlin Entertainments India Pvt. Ltd said, “We are delighted to announce the presence of his figure here today and are certain that guests will be excited to play and pose with him at the attraction. He has been a master on and off the field and now will be a sought-after part of our attraction.”
