#Repost @kabirkhankk . . . Sachin was 9 years old when he saw on television Kapil’s Devils win the World Cup in 1983 right here at this ground. That win inspired him to want to play for India. 35 years later we kick off the prep for our film 83 at the Lords... Can’t get better than this can it? @ranveersingh @sachintendulkar #indiaenglandseries #lords #filmprep
