    Legendary cricketer Kapil Dev hospitalised after suffering heart attack

    The 62-year-old legendary cricketer underwent angioplasty at the Fortis Escort Hospital in Delhi and is said to be in a stable condition now

    Guwahati: In an unfortunate turn of events, former India captain Kapil Dev was hospitalised after he suffered a massive heart attack on Friday morning.

    The 62-year-old legendary cricketer underwent angioplasty at the Fortis Escort Hospital in Delhi and is said to be in a stable condition now. He is kept under observation in ICU.

    Kapil Dev is credited to putting India on the world map as he defeated the mighty West Indies in the 1983 World Cup final in Lord’s as India won their first-ever World Cup trophy. 

    Kapil Dev was also one of the leading all-rounders in world cricket as he smashed over 5000 runs in Tests and also took 434 wickets. His tally of wickets was the highest at one point in time but it has now been overhauled by many bowlers. However, Kapil Dev remains the highest wicket-taker by an Indian pacer in Tests.
