Kapil Dev to represent India in Golf at 2018 Asia Pacific Seniors

first_imgKapil Dev will represent India in the 2018 Asia Pacific Seniors golf tournament after a string of good performances in the All India Senior Tournament.He had finished third in the All India Senior Tournament, which was held at the JP Greens Golf Course in Noida in July.Kapil, who guided India to their maiden cricket World Cup victory in 1983 and retired from the gentleman’s game 10 years later in 1994, is all set to represent his country again.The 2018 Asia Pacific Seniors will begin from October 17 at the Tom Watson Golf Club in Miyazaki, Japan. Kapil, who had earlier played the tournament in 2015 in China, will be a part of the Indian gold team.Kapil will play alongside Rishi Narain (winner of the senior National 2018) and Amit Luthra (the winner of Senior National 2015).Kapil had previously said that he was at first skeptical about playing a sport again but that went away the moment he tried out the game.”A friend of mine called me to play golf and I told him, ‘I don’t want to go out and play in public, after cricket.’ He said that after the first hole nobody will see you, you will be far inside with only your caddie and four friends,” Dev told indulgexpress.com.”In golf you have total control on your body, power, strength, and the result is yours. You can’t raise a finger on anybody. I think that gave me the strength, so I can criticise myself and I can say that I played bad.As Kapil embarks on his new journey, he would hope that his new stint for his country is as fruitful as his previous one. He had finished his cricketing career with 9031 runs from 356 international games (Tests and ODIs). He has also taken 687 wickets across the two formats.advertisementlast_img
