Delightfully produced DVD Video - this work will serve as a major work of reference for many years to come, and is deserving of a warm welcome.

Indian Summer is a landmark documentary marking the 25th anniversary of a defining moment in cricket history as it featured the biggest upset in the competition's history to date. India's only triumph in two previous editions of the World Cup was against the amateurs of East Africa in 1975 and they were quoted by the bookmakers at 66-1.In fact, India had made their intentions clear from the outset by defeating the West Indies and Australia once each in the preliminary stage and Zimbabwe twice - the second time by virtue of a most memorable knock in the history of the World Cup - by captain Kapil Dev at Tunbridge Well.

Indian Summer is a story of the 1983 Prudential World Cup in which India beat the West Indies in the final by 43 runs at Lord's on June 25 to lift the Prudential Cup after beating England by six wickets at Old Trafford, Manchester in the semi-final on June 22.

India's splendid triumph led to an upsurge in interest in limited overs cricket in India while also creating a team of legends that will never be forgotten.

The programme captures the places and personalities of the tournament incorporating unforgettable archival footage blended with exclusive reminiscences from the star performers including Kapil Dev, Mohinder Amarnath, Roger Binny, Krishnamachari Srikkanth, Madan Lal and Balwinder Sandhu from the winning side; Sir Vivian Richards and Michael Holding from the runners-up; David Gower of England; Dave Houghton of Zimbabwe; as well as umpire Harold "Dickie" Bird.
