Throwback: Kapil Dev’ menacing outswinger foxes David Boon

India legend Kapil Dev produced a nigh-unplayable peach to dismiss Australia opener David Boon in the early stages of the second innings of a 1991 ODI in Adelaide. The ball was pitched on leg-stump but started to shape away and left Boon completely puzzled as he played all over it and the off-stump took a beating. It was a dream delivery that every pacer aspires to produce.

Kapil Dev retired in 1994, at the time holding the world record for the most number of wickets in Test cricket. At the time, he was also India’s top wicket-taker in Tests and ODIs. He is the first player to take 200 ODI wickets.
