Kapil Dev Said 'Don't Give Up Easily': Kris Srikkanth Recalls India's World Cup-Winning 1983 Campaign

"Don't give up easily" were the words which spurred the India cricket team to win its maiden World Cup in 1983, and give it the belief to defend a miniscule total of 183 in 60 overs on that magical day of June 25.

"See, Kapil Dev said only one thing. He said, 'we have got out for 183. But, don't give up easily. Let's fight, and let us not give it up easily'. He said one final effort, so don't give up. Those were his exact words," revealed India legend Kris Srikkanth, who opened the innings with Sunil Gavaskar and scored 38 runs, which ultimately turned out to be the highest score from both sides in the final.
