Blind students spend a fun day out with players from Kolkata Knight Riders!
It was all about fun and laughter for students from the Ramakrishna Mission Blind Boys Academy in Kolkata.
Players from the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team visited the school and played with the boys. The children could barely contain their excitement during the practice sessions. They cheered and bowled when KKR team members played some remarkable shots.
What was so incredible was that the KKR team played cricket blindfolded! Piyush Chawla, Rinku Singh, Javon Searles, Nitish Rana, and Shubham Gill were some of the players who visited students from the blind school. The children were excited when they batted for their favourite players.
Among the students was Montu Barui, from class 9. He got the chance to bowl to Rana, who is Barui's favourite player after M.S. Dhoni. He was even more excited when he bowled Rana out!
Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly gave a motivational speech during the event.
