    played 40, won 12 and lost 28. Their most notable World Cup moment till then was
    Sunil Gavaskars 36 off 174 balls in their very first match, in 1975. But they
    began the 1983 World Cup on the front foot, beating holders West Indies and then
    pulling off an improbable win over Zimbabwe thanks to Kapil Devs unbeaten 175. A
    win over England in the semis and they were at Lords to take on West Indies, who
    were aiming for a hat-trick of titles.The moment In the final, West Indies won
    the toss, put India in and restricted them to a fairly underwhelming 183 - a
    total thanks in large part to Kris Srikkanths 38. At the halfway stage it seemed
    game over, given West Indies batting firepower. They lost their openers with 50
    on the board, but had Viv Richards and Clive Lloyd at the crease. Then came the
    moment that turned the match: a stunning catch by Kapil Dev to dismiss Richards,
    and West Indies caved in to lose by 43 runs.The reaction The 1983 World Cup
    changed the entire sport in our country and gave a new dimension to Indian
    cricket - Kapil DevExpert view A great moment as the whole country could relate
    to this hugely popular game and feel the collective pride in the achievement. -
    Suma Shirur, shooterThe story since Much of what Indian cricket is today -
    especially its commercial status - can be directly linked back to that day at
    Lords. The immediate follow-up was winning the World Championship of Cricket in
    1985, and since then India have been among crickets top teams. The financial
    impact was far greater; the next World Cup was held on the subcontinent, as have
    two more since. India is now firmly established as the games economic

    . Zvonareva, who won the tournament in 2009 and 10,
    couldnt handle her opponents big groundstrokes in only her third event back
    after 17 months out with a shoulder injury. Zvonareva made her comeback in
    January in Shenzhen and played in the Australian Open but lost her first matches
    at both tournaments.

    . Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top
    against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake,
    B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller
    got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the
    Canucks 4-1. The Cleveland Indians?could have to make do without one of their
    power hitters in Games 3-5 of the World Series in Chicago.?Indians manager Terry
    Francona will have to decide between?Mike Napoli?and?Carlos Santana?at first
    base, although Francona has?toyed with the idea of Santana playing outfield, per
    ESPNs Jerry Crasnick.If Francona makes a choice between Santana and Napoli, it
    would likely come down to batter versus pitcher matchups.?Right-handers Kyle
    Hendricks and John Lackey?take the mound for the Chicago Cubs in Games 3 and 4.
    Lefty Jon Lester is the probable starter for Game 5.?Napoli, the Indians primary
    first baseman, bats right-handed. He has had more success against right-handers
    when it comes to big hits, but is more consistent against lefties. He had
    a?.229/.322/ .471 line against right-handed pitchers during the regular season.
    Napoli had a better batting average (.262) and on-base percentage (.366) against
    lefties, but a worse slugging percentage (.451).Of Napolis at-bats during the
    regular season, 393 were against righties, compared to 164 versus left-handers.
    Napoli had 27 home runs against right-handers and seven against southpaws.Also
    worth noting: Nappoli was a catcher on the 2013 Red Sox team, and Lester?was his
    teammate.dddddddddddd Napoli has played in the postseason eight times, while
    Santana has this 2016 postseason and the 2013 wild-card game under his
    belt.Santana is typically the Indians designated hitter, but he can also play
    first base. He is a switch-hitter who primarily bats left-handed, taking 410 of
    his 572 at-bats on that side of the plate during the regular season. He batted
    .267/.374/.395 as a right-handed batter and .256/.347/.541 from the left
    side.From a power standpoint, Santana fares better in the left side of the box,
    from where he hit 30 of his 34 home runs.?Neither Santana nor Napoli has lived
    up to his regular-season reputation in the postseason.. Napoli is 7-for-34,
    batting .206/.289/ .382/ ?with a homer, three doubles and two RBIs. Santana is
    hitting .143/.250/.314. He also has two RBIs, coming from two home runs.Who
    should start the most at first base at Wrigley Field: Santana or Napoli? Cast
