STORY: Indian cricket legend Kapil Dev unveiled his wax figure at New Delhi’s Madame Tussauds museum on Thursday (May 11).
Dev, 58, is considered as one of the greatest cricketers of India. The figure shows the all-rounder in his iconic bowling pose and is reminiscent of India’s historic win in the 1983 World Cup.

Madame Tussauds was founded in the year 1835 by Marie Tussauds in London. From early works of Marie, Madame Tussauds created an international phenomenon that still remains a famous attraction for millions of visitors every year.
