The Board of Control for Cricket in India will celebrate the silver jubilee of India's only triumph in World Cup by holding a felicitation function in New Delhi on June 22 and triumphant captain Kapil Dev [Images] will be invited for the function, its chief Sharad Pawar [Images] said in Mumbai on Saturday.
"The felicitation function for the members of the 1983 World Cup winning team will be held at Taj Palace in New Delhi on June 22," Pawar said after a book launch programme.
"Yes, Kapil Dev will be invited to attend it as he was the captain," Pawar said when specifically asked whether the great all-rounder, who has aligned himself with the 'rebel' Indian Cricket League, will be invited for the function.
Two other members, who are connected with ICL, Madan Lal and Balwinder Singh Sandhu, were also part of the history-making team on June 25 at Lord's.
