India thrash Pakistan by 7 wickets in Blind Cricket World Cup

India thrash Pakistan by 7 wickets in Blind Cricket World Cup”

The top two from each group will qualify for the quarter-finals.

The plate tournament will run simultaneously but end with the final at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Christchurch on January 28.

India's morale has further gone up with this fantastic victory.

The tournament includes teams from cricket-playing nations such as Australia, England and India. A total of 16 teams slotted in four groups will engage in a sum of 48 ODIs between January 13 and February 3.

Pakistan had earlier defeated Bangladesh and Nepal before coming to play India in the mega event.

The likes of India captain Prithvi Shaw, team mate Shubham Gill, Australia captain Jason Sangha, Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi, Afghanistan batting sensation Baheer Shah, they all go into the event after making a mark on the domestic circuit back home. The fact that Dravid, who has had an exemplary record in New Zealand as a player, is the coach, will come in handy for the youngsters. Skipper Ajay Reddy scored nine runs and Prakash Jayaramiah scored 76. The National Cricket Team Leg-spinner Rashid Khan was one of the key members of that squad and is now one of the leading spinners of the world in ODIs and T20Is. Speaking to icc.com, Dravid said, "We started the process (of preparing) nearly a year ago in terms of identifying a core group of 35-40 kids that we wanted to give exposure to".

India's game against Pakistan was built up around a lot of controversies.
