Kolkata: Two of the best Indian skippers of all times i.e Kapil Dev and Mahendra Singh Dhoni yesterday took on one another on the cricket pitch, with a bunch of kids egging them on at the Eden Gardens.
The two iconic cricketers bowled and batted against each other, toiling in the oppressive heat through the day all for a commercial shoot.
First Kapil, who led India to World Cup glory in 1983, bowled to Dhoni, who came up with some dashing strokes. After some time, 2011 World Cup winning skipper Dhoni went to the bowler’s mark, with Kapil occupying the popping crease.
A group of children and teenagers joined and applauded the duo, as part of the shooting, which would finally take the shape of a 30 second advertisement. Noted filmmaker-actor Arindam Sil, directing his first television ad, seemed elated, filled with nostalgia.
