The India vs Aus World Cup 2023 has got off to a thrilling start, with the Indian batsmen putting up a strong fight but succumbing to the Australian bowling team. The final match is being played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. Indian greats from past World Cup wins, including Kapil Dev and others, were also expected at the world’s largest cricket ground.
From Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gauri Khan to Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, celebrities are flocking to the stadium to watch the fateful match. However, there is a famous person who should have been there but wasn’t. It was also surprising why he wasn’t there.
While Ranveer Singh, the reel ‘Kapil Dev’ who played the Captain of the Indian Cricket Team in Kabir Khan’s film 83, is witnessing the moment India wrote history, the real Kapil Dev, the man who has already written history won the World Cup in 1983 missing from the stadium.
Kapil Dev, in a recent interview with ABP News, declared, “Unhone bulaya nahi, main gaya nahi.” Yes. You read that right. The former Cricket Captain who won the 1983 World Cup was not invited by the ICC to rewrite history!
Kapil Dev even declared that hosting the Cricket World Cup is a huge responsibility, and even wanted to enjoy the final match with his 1983 World Cup winning team, but none of them were invited for the final match of the Cup World Ind Vs Aus 2023. He added, “Maybe they missed it or forgot it.”

On the other hand, Ranveer Singh, who played Kapil Dev on screen, is enjoying the game with his wife, Deepika Padukone, and the netizens have reacted to this irony! Read a comment on a discussion thread on Reddit, “Wtf? I find it hard to believe that they forgot to invite Kapil Dev. Either it was a deliberate omission, or whoever was in charge of communicating with him has resigned from the king. If this is true, this would be another reason to show how badly the BCCI hosted this World Cup.”
Many users on X (formerly Twitter) pointed out how Kapil Dev’s support for the wrestlers’ protest earlier could be the reason for this disregard.
