Chandigarh: Legendary cricketer Kapil Dev on Saturday turned emotional at the demise of his coach and Dronacharya awardee Desh Prem Azad, saying he has lost his Guru and a dear friend.
"He was my Guru. I have lost my Guru. More than that, he was also a great friend of mine," said Kapil, who struggled to keep his tears under control after Azad was cremated here in the presence of a large gathering of sportspersons and administrators.
"I owe him a lot for whatever I have achieved in my life as a cricketer," Kapil told reporters.
