National Deaf Cricket Tournament called off, players upset
The Eighth National Deaf Cricket Tournament that was supposed to happen in Ranchi this week has been postponed indefinitely as there is no ground available to play the matches. This has come as a huge disappointment to the teams from Gujarat and Jharkhand that were scheduled to play.
Coach Nitendra Singh says the decision to call the series off was communicated to them at the last minute. This has obviously come as a huge disappointment to the players, who have been practising intensively. The Jharkhand players had already gathered in Ranchi for the matches, while the Gujarat players were on their way
The deaf cricketers have had to battle a number of challenges right from the start. The Gujarat team captain, Imran Sheikh, had to raise funds from the public so players could buy tickets for Ranchi when the Deaf Cricket Association of Vadodara refused support.All those efforts have proven futile, and the players say they are disappointed.
They are all hoping that the next tournament in Jamshedpur in April will take place as scheduled.
