Cricket Great Kapil Dev Steady After Angioplasty
NEW DELHI: Cricket great Kapil Dev, who captained India to their 1983 World Cup accomplishment, is stable after going through an emergency coronary angioplasty having suffered chest pain, according to a hospital declaration on Friday.
The 61-year-old former India captain was confessed after midnight at the Delhi healthcare facility and went through the procedure in the early hours on Friday.
” Currently, he is confessed in ICU and under close guidance …” the medical facility said.
” Mr. Kapil Dev is steady now and he is expected to get released in number of days.”
Nicknamed the “Haryana Hurricane”, Dev played 131 tests and 225 one-dayers before retiring in 1994 as perhaps the very best Indian all-rounder.
A crafty medium pacer and a free-scoring batsman, he led India to the 1983 World Cup title in an unforgettable triumph of the underdogs beating a powerful West Indies team in the Lord’s last.
“Wishing @therealkapildev great health & a quick healing. Make sure sir,” tweeted former India opener Gautam Gambhir.
