But one thing that amazes me is that Kapil (except for 1 test whihc he was rested) never missed a single Test due to injury.I think that was phenominal for a fast bowler
I thought he was dropped for that infamous shot in Calcutta and not rested ( don't understand that term at all. we use it as well ). Kapil would have got a lot more wkts had he played more on pitches that assisted him. And his batting, when on song, was as good as any batsmen of that era..
