India's World Cup triumphs in 1983 and 2011, under Kapil Dev and M. S. Dhoni respectively, remain the major highlights in Indian ODI history. “Releasing this book has been an incredible journey. We started work on it four months back. We dug deep into our archives, and our photographers worked day and night to pick the best photos. Our Sportstar reporters and photographers travelled the world to cover the Indian cricket team in the 1980s and 1990s. This is the best tribute to Indian cricket,” Ayon Sengupta, Editor, Sportstar, said.
