Cricket World Cup: The Indian Challenge is a complete match by- match catalogue of India in the Cricket World Cup with scorecards. It details the little-known story of India’s turning point—a victory in March 1983 over the then invincible West Indies in Guyana, before Kapil Dev’s team sensationally lifted the World Cup three months later. It relives India’s forgotten triumph in the 1985 World Championship in Australia. It depicts how Sachin Tendulkar inspired Yuvraj Singh to perform at his best in India’s successful campaign in the 2011 World Cup. And why the Indians disappointed in 2015 and 2019, but have home advantage in 2023.
