Deaf Cricket League begins, lack of audience spoils the spirit
March 29, 2018
The third edition of the Usha Deaf Cricket League 2018 has begun in Ludhiana. But the lack of an audience has spoiled the spirit of the game.
The event at the Punjab Agricultural University has more than 150 players from eight teams.
The lack of support from government authorities and cricket lovers across India is dampening the spirits of a bunch of passionate deaf cricket players. This is precisely why the All India Federation of Cricket for Deaf has been trying to get an affiliation with the Board of Cricket Control for India (BCCI).
Players and organizers complained about how concerned officials or the sports departments are not taking any interest in deaf cricket.
Deaf cricketers say they deserve equal opportunities like able-bodied cricketers. Lack of awareness and poor publicity about matches makes things worse for deaf cricket.
Chenab XI, Ravi XI, Beas XI, Sutlej XI, Jhelum XI, AICAD XI, Silent Heroes XI and Deaf Lions XI are the eight teams that are taking part in the Deaf Cricket League.
