Blind Cricket profiles: Team Captain Ajay Reddy
January 13, 2017
Ajay Kumar Reddy will captain the Indian Blind Cricket team for the upcoming T-20 series. He is a B2, or partially blind, category player and has received more than 50 Man of the Series and many Man of the Match awards.
The 26-year-old got interested in cricket when he was in school after he saw his seniors play blind cricket.
He played his first match in 2003 when he was still in school at a district-level tournament.
Ajay is from Guntur in Andhra Pradesh and chose cricket as a career after completing college.
He played his first international tournament against England in 2010 as part of the India-England tour. He says Shekha Naik, who is a former Indian Blind Cricket captain, is his inspiration.
