America's hyperactive Ambassador Eric Garcetti met members of India's 1983 World Cup-winning team -- Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Ravi Shastri, Roger Binny, Kirti Azad and Mohinder Amarnath in New Delhi on Friday, November 17, 2023.

'Met the OGs of cricket '83 legends Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Roger Binny, Jimmy Amarnath, Kirti Azaad and Ravi Shastri!' Garcetti tweeted, wishing Team India for the World Cup 2023 final in Ahmedabad on Sunday.

'They bowled me over with their stories from India's first cricket World Cup victory! Rooting for Team India for the World Cup final on Sunday,' Garcetti tweeted.

'Men In Blue, you're on fire, let's bring that trophy home once more!'

America will host the T20 World Cup in June 2024 with the West Indies.
