WHAT IS THE WORLD CHAMPIONS PROGRAMME - CRICKET FOR THE BLIND?
Cricket is a religion that binds our country. The passion for the game transcends age, race, geographies and languages. This passion for the game also extends to the visually impaired. They are equally committed to the game and have overcome great odds to be a part of the sport.
