Former India skipper Kapil Dev will represent the country once again. 24 years after his retirement from cricket – he is all set to represent the country in new sport.
The former all-rounder has made it to the national golf team which will take part in the 2018 Asia Pacific Seniors. The tournament will be played from October 17 to 19 at the Tom Watson Golf Club in Miyazaki, Japan.
Dev has previously spoken about how he started playing golf, and what he subsequently liked about the sport.
“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,” he added.
