ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's women's blind cricket team will play a series against Nepal's team -- which will tour the country -- in 2015.

Pakistan Blind Cricket Council (PBCC) Chairman Syed Sultan Shah said a total of five Twenty-20 matches will be played between both teams in five different cities.

Sultan said it will be the first series of International Women's Blind Cricket, adding, “It is an honour that it will be started through Pakistan and staged here too.”

Sultan said the PBCC is all set to bring out their women's team in the time to come.

"The PBCC is working hard to form a women’s blind cricket team in Pakistan so that the ladies are not left isolated from this game," he said.

“We have a lot of talent in our girls and that is why it is the need of the hour to form a women's team,” the chairman said.

Speaking about the men's cricket team, Sultan said the two-time winners and defending champions of Pakistan will open their World Cup campaign against arch-rivals India on November 27 in South Africa.

The men's blind team has record won two World Cups – one in 2002 and the other in 2006 – and has the ability to reach the final of all three editions of the World Cup.
