8. The embodiment of talent, Kapil Dev.
What’s the most promising ODI XI team without Kapil Dev in it? This 1983 World Cup-winning captain has a special place in all the cricket fans’ hearts.
He has been regarded as one of the finest all-rounders in cricket that the nation has ever seen. In the 225 ODIs that he has played, he scored 3783 runs with a strike rate of 95.07 and bagged 253 wickets with an economy of just 3.72, which is pure brilliance.
Even after 25 years of his retirement, his 253 wicket tally remains the sixth highest on the list.
No.8 just got weight!
