1. Dawood Ibrahim and Kapil Dev
It isn’t quite shocking that crime lord Dawood Ibrahim had access everywhere. He even entered the Indian cricket dressing room. The then captain Dilip Vengsarkar revealed that Dawood once came into the dressing room and offered everyone a car if they beat Pakistan. It was during a tournament in Sharjah in 1987. Needless to say, Kapil Dev kicked him out saying,’ Chal bahar Chal.” “(Get Lost!”).
We will never be able to grasp the mood of players in the dressing room. It’s great to hear how cricketers enjoy each other’s company in the tense world of sports.
P.S. Yuvraj Singh has earned a reputation of being a fantastic match winner and the biggest prankster in the Indian team.
