India celebrates 37 years of maiden World Cup triumph in 1983
 
New Delhi: As India celebrates the 37th anniversary of the historic Cricket World Cup triumph from 1983, members of that World Cup-winning team and India cricketers from across generations are cheering the watershed moment in country''s cricketing history. On June 25, 1983, the Indian national cricket team under the leadership of Kapil Dev defied all odds and outclassed the mighty West Indies to lift their first-ever World Cup trophy at the Lord''s Cricket Ground. In the finals of the Prudential Cup, it was West Indies who won the toss and put India in to bat first. However, India could only put 183 on the board. In reply, West Indies were bowled out for 140 as India won the match by 43 runs and stunned the world.

Kapil''s Devils ended West Indies'' World Cup dominance as the skipper lifted the trophy at the Lord''s balcony - an iconic image that is etched in the memories of Indian cricket fans. The landmark win changed Indian cricket forever, established it as the leading sport of the country and inspired millions. Celebrating the 37th anniversary of the historic moment, many cricketers on Thursday took to Twitter to explain the significance of the event. ''''Class of 83 .37 years and still counting !!25th June 1983,'''' tweeted Madan Lal, who was also the part of the winning team. ''''What a day that was. A dream come true.
