The Cricket Association of the Blind in India says that India's blind cricketers will finally get their due from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The BCCI is about to affiliate their body, said CABI.

The Indian blind cricket team retained the Blind World Cup, beating Pakistan by two wickets in the final in Sharjah. This is the second time the team won the T20 World Cup. All other cricket boards, including Pakistan, have taken their blind cricket associations under their wings. After a request from cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar, the BCCI will soon be doing so too. said CABI president GK Mahantesh.

Mahantesh also said that it was nice of Sachin to write a letter recommending the team to BCCI. He said that the access to infrastructure would help spread the popularity of blind cricket.
