West Indies won the toss and chose to bowl first in the 1983 World Cup final between India and West Indies.
Andy Roberts got three wickets, while Malcolm Marshall, Michael Holding, and Larry Gomes each took two, limiting the Kapil Dev-led team to just 183 runs.
India did a superb job of controlling the Windies’ run flow while defending 183, bringing the side down to 57/3.
The Caribbean squad was soon reduced to 76/6, and India became the clear favorite to win the match. So Michael Holding’s final wicket was taken by Mohinder Amarnath, giving India their first-ever World Cup victory.
West Indies was bowled out for 140 in the championship match, which gave India a 43-run victory over them.
For all Indian supporters, seeing Kapil Dev raise the trophy from the Lord’s Cricket Ground balcony is still a memorable moment.
Mohinder Amarnath, who amassed 26 runs with the bat and three wickets with the ball during the finals, was named Man of the Match.
From the first World Cup to the most recent one, India has consistently taken part. The inaugural edition took place in 1975, and since then it has happened every four years.
