Former Indian cricketer Yashpal Sharma, a member of the 1983 World Cup-winning team, died of a heart attack on Tuesday morning, PTI News reported, citing family sources. Batsman Sharma has played 37 test matches and 42 one-day internationals.

He debuted in India on England tour in 1979 and performed the last of 37 tests in October 1983. For a century, he has not lost a single defeat to Australia in Delhi, and his highest test (140) was against England in Chennai. In the cricket test, he averaged 1606 runs and 33.45 runs.

However, Sharma's legacy in Indian cricket was determined by the importance he played to the team during the 1983 World Cup campaign he won. He started the tournament hard as he scored the most goals in India's opening match with 89 goals against the West Indies and helped the team defeat the reigning champion. He then scored a losing streak but scored a decisive 40 against Australia in a match he was supposed to win for the team.
