Former Indian Captain Kapil Dev talked about the great all-rounders England’s Ian Botham, Pakistan’s Imran Khan and New Zealand’s Richard Headley. Kapil said that he himself was a better athlete than these three. At the same time, he told Botham the most brilliant all-rounder.
Former Indian cricketer and current head coach of the women’s team, WV Raman, chatted online with Kapil. During this, Kapil said, “Ian Botham was a true all-rounder. He could have won the match under any circumstances. I don’t want to say that Headley was the best betsman. “
Leadership quality in Imran was excellent
Kapil said, “Botham could do a lot of damage to the opposition team with his batting and bowling. Leadership quality in Imran was excellent. He took care of the Pakistani team well and had many challenges. “
Headley was the best bowler among the four
He said, “Headley was the best bowler among the four of us. They were like computers. I would not say that Imran was the best athlete, but was very hardworking. He reached here after learning from himself. I would not even say that I am great, but I was the best athlete among the four. “Kapil won the first World Cup in 1983 to India under his captaincy. He scored 5248 runs in 131 Tests and took 434 wickets. Kapil has 3783 runs and 253 wickets in 225 ODIs.
