Kapil Dev Not Invited For Ind vs Aus World Cup 2023 Final Match While His Reel Version Ranveer Singh Enjoys The Match ( Photo Credit – IMDb )
India Vs Aus World Cup 2023 is off to a spectacular start, and the Indian Batsmen fought hard but lost to the bowling skills of the Australian Cricket Team. The final match is being played at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. Indian dignitaries who have won the World Cup in the past, including Kapil Dev and others, were also expected at the biggest cricket stadium in the world.
From Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gauri Khan to Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, celebrities thronged the stadium to watch the match. However, there is one famous person who should be there but is not. The reason for his absence was also a mystery.
While Ranveer Singh, the reel ‘Kapil Dev’ who played the Indian Cricket Team Captain in Kabir Khan’s film 83, is witnessing a time when India will make history, the real Kapil Dev, the man who has already made history by winning the World Cup. 1983 is missing from this forum.
Kapil Dev, in a recent interview with ABP News confirmed, “Unhone bulaya nahi, main gaya nahi.” Yes. You read that correctly. The ICC did not invite the former Cricket Captain who won the 1983 World Cup to see the history re-written!
Kapil Dev also said that hosting the Cricket World Cup is a big responsibility, and though he wanted to enjoy the final match with his 1983 World Cup winning team, but none of them were invited to the Ind Vs Aus World Cup 2023 final match. He also said, “ They may miss or forget about it.”

On the other hand, Ranveer Singh, who played Kapil Dev on screen, is enjoying the game with his wife, Deepika Padukone, and the audience reacted to this joke! A comment on a discussion thread on Reddit said, “Wtf? I find it hard to believe that they forgot to call Kapil Dev. Either they left it out on purpose, or whoever was responsible for talking to them is fed up with the king. If this is true, this would be another reason to show that the BCCI it has done badly in this World Cup.”
Many users on X (formerly Twitter) pointed out that Kapil Dev’s support for the opposition of the batsmen in the past may be the reason for ignoring this.
