Cricket Association for the Blind launches blind women’s cricket team
After the success of the Indian blind men’s cricket team at national and international level, the Cricket Association for the Blind in India (CABI) plans to launch the Indian blind women’s cricket team.
The team will have 41 members selected by former Indian woman team captain and women selection committee chairman, Shantha Rangaswamy.
The move has been made to help the women get the same recognition worldwide like blind men’s team.
Blind cricket is a form of cricket that has been adapted for blind or visually impaired players.
The game depends on the use of the ‘sweep shot’ or cross-batted front foot shot which is played to a low bouncing ball and provides maximum chance of the bat hitting the ball.
