Organizers of Deaf Cricket League forced to take gold loans for giving away prizes
March 30, 2018
The third edition of the Usha Deaf Cricket League is going on in Ludhiana in Punjab. In a country where cricket is considered important, the event is not getting any attention from the public.
To make things worse, the organizers at Punjab Cricket Association for the Deaf are taking gold loans to meet the basic requirements of the match.
Padam Passi, General Secretary of the Punjab Cricket Association for the Deaf, said that he had to get a loan using his own gold jewelry to buy a car for the best player of the match.
There are players from Nepal and Bangladesh taking part in the cricket league, yet the government has not extended any support.
The last three editions of the cricket league were held after organizers received monetary help from sponsors.
