Sunday, 14 Jan, 2018

Electing to bat, Nepal could muster only 156 in 37.5 overs for the loss of nine wickets as India dished out a fine bowling and fielding effort.

History once again repeated itself when defending champions India convincingly outplayed Pakistan by 7 wickets in the ongoing Blind Cricket World Cup at the Ajman Oval Cricket Ground here on Friday.

Batting first, Sri Lanka scored a mammoth 494-4 in their allotted 40 overs and packed Nepal for 154 runs in 33.4 overs.

India will now take on Bangladesh in the semis on January 17. The Indian bowlers executed their plans very well as they restricted the opposition team to that score. In reply, India comfortably chased down the target in 34.5 overs as Haryana's Deepak Malik top-scored with an unbeaten 79 off 71 balls. Reddy was also declared the Man of the Match for superb his all-round performance. It will not be wrong to say that, this victory was due to the incredible and outstanding application of the Indian openers.
