India blind team to tour Pakistan

LAHORE: India’s blind cricket team will tour Pakistan to play three Twenty20s and an equal number of one-day matches as part of the first bilateral series between the two sides since 2005.

India will arrive in Pakistan and play three back-to-back Twenty20s from November 18 to 20 in Lahore. These matches will be followed by the two teams contesting the three 50-over games from November 22 to 26 in Islamabad.

The Pakistan Blind Cricket Council President Syed Sultan Shah was delighted at hosting the series.

“Although we aren’t as rich as the Pakistan Cricket Board, our dedication is very much alive,” Shah told The Express Tribune. “The same commitment has led to the resumption of the bilateral series. There are many sports suffering from isolation but I think our series will help the country give a strong message to the world.”
