World champion captain Kapil Dev also attended the calendar launch ceremony of the PGTI Tour in New Delhi on Thursday. Kapil Dev said, “If customs duties are removed from different sports goods, then it will be easier for the youth to buy them and Indian sports will get a further boost through this.”
