Kapil Dev is India's second highest wicket-taker in Test cricket.[1]

Kapil Dev is a former Test and One Day International (ODI) cricketer who represented India between 1978 and 1994. He took 24 five-wicket hauls during his international career. In cricket, a five-wicket haul—also known as a five-for or fifer[2]—refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement,[3] and fewer than 40 bowlers have taken more than 15 five-wicket hauls at international level in their cricketing careers.[4][N 1] A right-arm fast bowler, Kapil Dev took 434 wickets in Test cricket and 253 in ODIs.[5] With 23 five-wicket hauls in Tests, he has the third highest number of international five-wicket hauls among Indian cricketers as of 2012, after Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.[4][N 2] Kapil Dev was named by the Wisden as one of their Cricketers of the Year in 1983 and Indian Cricketer of the Century in 2002.[6][7] Eight years later, the International Cricket Council (ICC) inducted him into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.[8] As of 2012, Kapil Dev also holds the record for being the only player to have taken more than 400 wickets and scored over 5,000 runs in Tests.[9][10][11][N 2]

Kapil Dev made his Test and ODI debuts against Pakistan, both in 1978.[5] His first five-wicket haul came a year later against England during the first Test of India's tour.[12] His career-best bowling figures in an innings of nine for 83 was achieved in 1983 against the West Indies in Ahmedabad.[12][N 3] In Tests, Kapil Dev was most successful against Pakistan and Australia, with seven five-wicket hauls against each of them.[12] He took his only five-wicket haul in ODIs against Australia during the 1983 Cricket World Cup.[12]

After playing for nearly 16 years, Kapil Dev retired from international cricket in 1994.[13] At the time of his retirement, he held the world record for the most wickets taken in Test and ODI cricket; both records were subsequently broken by Courtney Walsh and Wasim Akram respectively.[13][14][15] His combined tally of 24 five-wicket hauls is eleventh in the all-time list in 2012, a record jointly held with Sydney Barnes, Imran Khan and Dennis Lillee.[4][N 1]
