The great feat by Kapil Dev that went unrecorded


In 1983 World Cup, when Kapil Dev came to bat against Zimbabwe in the second round of the preliminary league matches, India was tottering at 7 runs for 4 wickets. He went on to score a scintillating 175 not out, but it could not be recorded due to a flash strike by the BBC. India badly needed to win the match, which was possible with his knock. He said after the match, ‘I was in a trance-like state when I began my innings. It was, however, one of those days when nothing could go wrong. I do not believe I will see another day like that in my career.’
