CRB Tech reviews has a great news for all the cricketing enthusiasts. In the recently concluded T20 World Cup for the blind, the Indian team emerged as the champions yet again.
The Indian visually impaired cricket team defended its Twenty20 World Cup title in Bengaluru on Sunday, overcoming most despised opponents Pakistan in the finals for the second successive time.
With eight wins from nine matches, India had gone into the last as top picks and lived up to it with a thumping triumph. For Pakistan however, it was their first loss in the competition and it came in the finals itself ! That too against India!!!
The two teams had fought it out in the 2012 final as well also with India rising as triumphant.
The triumph was likewise a sweet vengeance for the Indians, who had lost to Pakistan in the league phase of the present edition.
Congratulatory messages poured in for the #OtherMenInBlue for their noteworthy performance once more. Let’s check out some of the tweets from the famous personalities:
PM Narendra Modi Tweeted:
“Delighted that India won the Blind T20 World Cup. Congratulations to the team. India is proud of their accomplishment.”
Harsha Bhogle wrote:
“Congratulations to India’s visually impaired cricketers on winning the World Cup. Delighted. They play our game too.”
Virender Sehwag’s tweet was:
“Congratulations to our #OtherMenInBlue on winning the T20 World Cup for the Blind. They have lit up smiles for a billion people.”
Others who congratulated Team India by tweeting included names like Harbhajan Singh, Mamata Banerjee etc.
On the day that mattered the most, Pakistan batted first and reached a score of 197/9 on the scoreboard with Badar Munir scoring 57 from 37 balls hitting eight fours and one six amid the innings. He enjoyed in support from Muhammad Jamil, who scored 24 from 15 balls with the pair collecting 58 runs.
Both teams came into the challenge with a wonderful record amid the competition. Where India had won eight out of nine matches, losing just to Pakistan, beat Sri Lanka in the semi-final match by a big ten wicket margin to seal their place in the title clash. Neighbors Pakistan had been going one better by winning each of the nine matches and they had edged England in Karnataka by huge 147 runs.
In India’s bowling department, Ketan Patel and Jaffar Iqbal took two wickets each, while surrendering 29 and 33 runs individually.
A great win over the arch rivals, and that too in the finals ! Truly a great achievement!
CRB Tech reviews congratulates team India for the feat. Cheers!!!
