The Haryana Hurricane

Great players never fade away. The memory of their deeds remain as fresh as fallen dew. On the cricket firmament they can stir the hearts of their countrymen with a single shot or an unplayable delivery. Such giants of the sport are rare indeed.

India was lucky to be blessed with one such player in Kapil Dev Ramlal Nikhanj. Even now the mere mention of his name brings a smile to the connoisseurs of the game.
