Return of the Legend

Kapil Dev granted amnesty

Former India captain Kapil Dev and the Indian cricket board buried the hatchet following their differences over the cricketer joining rebel ICL (Indian Cricket League) and welcomed him back with immediate effect disbursing his one-time benefit payment of `1.5 crore.

The BCCI issued a media release, moments after the 1983 World Cup winning  met president N. Srinivasan at the board’s headquarters on Wednesday.

“The BCCI has received a letter from Mr. Kapil Dev, former India captain. Mr. Kapil Dev has informed the Board that he has resigned from the Essel Sports Private Limited/ICL. He has also stated in the letter that he has always supported the BCCI, and will continue to do so in the future.

The BCCI acknowledges Mr Kapil Dev’s immense contribution to Indian cricket and looks forward to a fruitful association with him in the years to come,” Srinivasan was quoted as saying by the release.
