New Delhi: Born almost a year after the Indian cricket team lifted the 1983 World Cup, Ireland allrounder Kevin O'Brien said it was Kapil Dev whom he had always looked up to as a budding cricketer.
"India won the World Cup in 1983 and I was born in 1984, I have grown up admiring Kapil Dev. And then in 2005 it was Andrew Flintoff. I was there during that Ashes series and I really liked the way he played," said Kevin O'Brien.
The Irish cricketer became an instant hero last year when he helped Ireland thrashed England in the last year's World Cup match with a strokeful century in Bangalore.
