Kris Srikkanth Hilariously Reveals Air India Ticket Cost During 1983 World Cup: WATCH

Former Indian captain and 1983 World Cup alumnus Kris Srikkanth holds quite a decorated cricketing career. While the cricketer played a pivotal hand that led to a historic moment of Kapil Dev lifting the World Cup trophy at Lord’s balcony, Srikkanth also contributed in shaping up India’s 2011 World Cup-winning line-up as a chief selector.

Kris Srikkanth turned 61 on Monday, December 21. To commemorate the 61st Srikkanth birthday occasion, here is a look back at the time when the dashing opening batsman hilariously revealed the team’s exclusive travelling plans for the 1983 World Cup event in England.

In June 2019, Kris Srikkanth and Kapil Dev appeared as guests on Viu India’s Cricket Diaries show. During the chat, Srikkanth revealed that he had married in March and earned a call-up for the 1983 World Cup in May by Sunil Gavaskar. The ex-opening batsman hilariously said that his chat with Gavaskar also included them discussing about travelling to the United States (US) together for holidays after the tournament in England.

Kris Srikkanth claimed that he was all set to take his wife for a honeymoon, first in England and then in USA. He revealed that the Air India flight tickets during those days’ cost around an expensive ₹10,000. However, he along with the rest of the team ended up altering their travel plans as they “unexpectedly” made to the final for a title-clash against two-time winners West Indies.
