Blind Cricket IPL style from November 2018!
A T20 tournament in the Indian Premier League format for blind cricketers will start this November.
The Cricket Association for the Blind in India is working towards building a eight to 10 franchisee league.
Some of the IPL team owners like Shah Rukh Khan, and the GMR group, who are co-owners of Delhi Daredevils are in talks with CABI.
CABI says there will be around 40 league matches along with three knock-out games held over 25 days. There may be two teams from one state, depending on the response.
The CABI is reaching out to promoters to make it a success.
There will be a base price of a minimum of Rs 50,000 per cricketer. This will also be a major income source for blind cricketers from India. At present they make just Rs 10,000 per month from playing.
The World Blink Cricket Limited, which oversees cricketers from across the world will take part in the event. Cricketers from all major Test playing nations will be playing the blind version of IPL T20, except Zimbabwe.
The name of the tournament will be decided very soon.
