Former Indian all-rounder, Yuvraj Singh took to Twitter to recall India’s first-ever World Cup win that came on June 25, 1983, at the Lord’s cricket ground under the captaincy of Kapil Dev. On Thursday, India is celebrating the 37th anniversary of the unforgettable World Cup win.
Yuvraj had tweeted: “A moment of national pride, our seniors lifted the 1983 Cricket World Cup on this day Congratulations to every member of the 1983 team You set the benchmark for us to achieve the same in 2011! Looking forward to India becoming a world champion in all sports”.
However, the current Indian head coach, Ravi Shastri took a dig at Yuvraj for not mentioning him and MS Dhoni in a tweet in April. The southpaw received a funny reply from the current Team India head coach. Shastri took a funny dig at Yuvraj and wrote “Thanks, Junior! You can tag me and Kaps also @therealkapildev.”

In reply, Yuvraj called the Indian head coach a legend on and off the field while heaping praise on the former India captain Kapil Dev. He replied, “Hahahahaha senior ! Your a legend on and off the field Kapil Paaji was a different league altogether”.
Hahahahaha senior ! Your a legend on and off the field 🤪👍👊🏽 Kapil Paaji was a different league altogether

In April, Shastri tweeted a video of MS Dhoni’s six that sealed the 2011 World Cup win for India and the scenes that followed on the ninth anniversary of the landmark day and wrote “Many Congratulations Guys! Something you will cherish all your life. Just like we from the 1983 group.”
Shastri, who was in the commentary box on that fateful evening, also tagged Sachin Tendulkar and current India captain Virat Kohli in his post. Yuvraj Singh, who was at the non-striker’s end when then-captain Dhoni hit the winning runs in 2011, cheekily responded to Ravi Shastri, tweeting, “Thanks senior ! U can tag me and mahi also we were also part of it,” with a laughing emoji.
Thanks senior ! U can tag me and mahi also we were also part of it 😂
