New Delhi: After granting amnesty to Kiran More, the BCCI in all likelihood will soon be granting amnesty to Kapil Dev and welcome him back in the official fold as the former Indian captain is all set to write to the cricket board on this issue.
It is learnt that BCCI president N Srinivasan has taken personal initiative in bringing the 1983 World Cup winning captain back in the BCCI fold. Kapil has finally relented on applying for amnesty after "fruitful discussions with the BCCI president."
"Although this was not on the agenda, the president (Srinivasan) informed the members that there has been fruitful discussions with Kapil Dev and the latter has agreed to seek amnesty. The formalities will be worked out soon," a senior working committee member preferring anonymity told PTI on Monday.
