World Cup 1983: Hai us Raat Main Sone Kyun Chala Gaya

Click here to read this post in Hindi (devnagari) script.

Pachchis saal pahale ki baton ko yaad karana kathin hai , par is ghatana ko main kaise bhool sakata hoon. ji haan, main 1983 ke world cup ki baat kar raha hoon. bharat mein rangin TV to 1982 ke asiad ke samay aaya tha par 1983 mein huye Prudential World Cup Cricket ke sare matchon ka seedhe prasaran ki vyavastha yahan to kya England mein bhi nahin thi. yahi vajah hai ki us pratiyogita mein zimbabwe ke khilaf sankatamochak ki tarah utare kapiladev ke shanadar nabad 175 ranon ka video footage upalabdh hi nahin hai.

jaisa kal IBN 7 par team ke sadasya kah rahe the ki ham par us vakt jeetane ka koee dabav nahin tha. hota bhi kaise jis team ne usase pahale ke sare vishv kapon mein kul milakar ek match hi jeeta ho, usase jyada ummid bhi kya rakhi ja sakati thi? pratiyogita shuru hone vakt main apani nani ke ghar kanapur gaya huaa tha. bharat ke pahale match ke agale din jab dooradarshan samachar ne bharat ke apane pahale match mein hi West Indies ko patakhani dene ki khabar sunaee, mera dil balliyon uchhalane laga. apane parivar ke pratyek sadasya ko jab tak mainne ye khabar nahin sunaee dil ko chain nahin pada.

sunanevalon ne to khabar mein utani dilachaspi nahin dikhaee par mere dil mein apani team ke liye aasha ka dipak jal chuka tha. BBC world aur doordarshan se milti khabaren hi match ke natijon ko ham tak pahuncha pati thin. bharatiy team ko apane group mein vest indija, aastreliya aur jimbabave se do do match khelane the. bharat ne apane pahale tin mein do match jeet liye the par aastreliya se apane pahle match mein vo buri tarah har gaya tha.

chauthe match mein WI se harane ke bad bhi bharat pratiyogita mein pahale ki darj jeeton ki vajah se bana huaa tha. par 18th June 1983 mein zimbabwe ke sath khela match bharat ke liye pratiyogita ka tarning pavyaint tha. bharat pahale baiting karate huye 17 ranon par panch wicket kho chuka tha aur 78 tak pahunchate pahunchate ye sankhya sat tak pahunch gaee thi par kaptan kapil dev ne apane nabad 175 ranon jisamein solah chauke aur chhakkon chhakke shamil the scorer ko aath wicket par 260 tak pahuncha diya. bharat ne zimbabwe ko is match mein 31 ranon se hara diya tha. viparit paristhitiyon mein match ko jeetne ke bad mujhe vishvas ho gaya tha ki abaki apani team semi final mein to pahunch hi jayegi. aur huaa bhi vahi! agale league match mein Australia ko harakar bharat semi fainal mein pahunch chuka tha.

ab tak main vapas patna aa chuka tha aur semifinal mein jab bharat ne England ko haraya tab mainne usaka seedha prasaran BBC World se sunane ka poorn aanand prapt kiya tha. fanal ke do din pahale se hi hamare mohalle ke sare bachche match ke bare mein vistar se charcha karate rahate. dooradarshan ne final match ke sidhe prasaran ki vyavastha ki thi. school ki garmi ki chhuttiyan shayad chal hi rahin thi. ham das barah vachche padosi ke ghar mein shvet shyam TV ke samane match shuru hone ke pandrah minat pahale hi jamin par chadar bichhakar baith gaye the. par jab bharat bina poore sath ovar khele hi 183 ran banakar laut aaya, ham sare bachchon ke cheharon ki udasi dekhane layak thi. pahale to program rat bhar padosi ke ghar
dera jamaye rakhane ka tha. par bharatiy ballebajon ke is nirashajanak pradarshan ne mujhe apana vichar badalane par majaboor kar diya. man itana dukhi tha ki thoda bahut kha pi kar main jald hi sone chal gaya.

subah uth ke akhabar khola to jeet ka samachar dekh ke dang rah gaya. bhaga bhaga apane tivi vale doston ke ghar gaya ki bhaee ye sab huaa kaise? bad mein kaee bar un yadagar lamahon ki rediyo kameintri
sunin aur vidiyo futej bhi dekha par dil mein malal rah hi gaya ki main hai us rat kyoon soya...!


khelon mein kuchh khas na kar pane vale desh ke liye vo jeet ek bahut badi jeet thi. us jeet ne ekadivasiy kriket mein achchha karane ke liye aage ki bharatiy teamon ke liye ek sapana jagaya. aaj jab is bat ko pachis sal bitane vale hain , aaiye un lamahon ko ek bar fir se dekhen yu tyoob ke is video ke jariye..



sath hi un khiladiyon ko mera koti koti salam jinhonne vishv kap jeetakar ek misal aage ki pidiyon ke liye chhod di..
