Is it true that, in an 80s tour match against Tasmania, Kapil Dev hit the ball from York Park across the North Esk River and into a Kmart car park, hitting someone’s windshield? I looked for an article on this after my father mentioned it, but I couldn’t find anything.

For completeness, I also looked at India's 1991-92 tour of Australia; the only match played in Tasmania was the ODI against Australia in which Kapil Dev did play but no sixes were hit.
