Pakistan’s blind cricket team defeated arch-rival India in the final of a three-country T-20 tournament in Dhaka to win the series, Imran Sheikh, director of the Pakistan Blind Cricket Council, told Media on Sunday.
Pakistan played first, setting a goal of 175 runs in 15 overs, which its bowlers defended with ease. The Pakistani skipper scored 69 points with 50 balls with 7 fours and thus remained the top scorer. In his hunt, Indian was able to get 112 runs with the loss of seven wickets.

Indian batsman Sunil Ramesh made 39 points out of 28 and remained the top scorer for his team. Sajid Nawaz’s Pakistani reached for wickets.
The T-20 tournament was originally scheduled to take place between April 2 and April 8, according to Sheikh, but was limited to two days after the Bengal government announced a ban due to an increase in COVID-19 cases.
The three league matches were limited to 10 overs, while the final was limited to 15 instead of 20 overs, he added. Previously, Bangladesh’s host team had lost both games to India and Pakistan, allowing the best South Asian teams to fight for the cup in the final.
