Kapil Dev appeared in good health as he greeted his India team-mates from the 1983 World Cup with a video, four days after he was discharged from a hospital in New Delhi.
Kapil was in good spirits as he expressed eagerness to meet his old friends and clarified he was feeling fine. He thanked everyone for their wishes. “Thank you for your wishes once again, and your concern. I hope we will meet as soon as possible. This year is about to end, but the start will be even better. Love you all,” he said.
Kapil, 61, was admitted to the Fortis Escorts Heart Institute in New Delhi last week after having suffered a heart attack.
