Kepil Dev. His 175 runs (or 185 whatever it may be)) against Zimbabwe really turned the scales in Indias favor.

There were quite a few who were reputed hitters then like Kapil Dev, Sandeep Patil and Kris Srikkanth (though Srikkanth was never known to hit big sixes, he used to hit cheeky strokes) ... some got this reputation later in their career like Ravi Shastri, Kirti Azad... ... but I think the team had won due to playing percentage cricket with everyone chipping in when needed... even the seemingly one man show by Kapil in the match against Zimbabwe had him having partnerships with first Binny then Madanlal and Kirmani. No doubt it was a scintillating effort by him but without anyone staying at the other end he couldn\'t have achieved what he could in the later part of the same innings... It was a superlative team effort.

Kapil Dev chose the occasion to lead by example and his whirlwind knock of 175 set the stage for a memorable Indian victory. !! India\'s 1983 cricket World Cup victory over the mighty West Indies is widely acknowledged as the defining moment in the history of Indian cricket. Under the spirited leadership of Kapil Dev, a determined Indian team exploited the English conditions to clinch the coveted title. !!!
