East Bengal to confer Kapil Dev with highest honour, host ceremonial farewell for Bhaichung Bhutia

India's first World Cup-winning cricket Captain Kapil Dev will be conferred East Bengal's highest honour, Bharat Gaurav, during its Foundation Day on August 1.

The red-and-gold also plans to host a ceremonial farewell for the iconic Bhaichung Bhutia in the run-up to the club's centenary celebrations next year. The former India captain will once again be seen in action, eight years after he last donned the blue jersey in the AFC Asian Cup in Qatar.

One of the country's greatest all-rounders, Kapil had signed for East Bengal on June 22, 1992, and played for 27 minutes six days later, as a substitute striker in an exhibition match versus Mohun Bagan.

The club will also honour legendary PK Banerjee with the 'Coach of coaches' award, while Laldanmawia Ralte will get 'Best Footballer of the Year' award on August 1.
