Blind Cricket profile: Sunil Ramesh
January 20, 2017
As a schoolboy, Sunil had big dreams of playing for India. He is a B3, or partially sighted, category player from Karnataka.
He got interested in the game while watching his senior in school.
He played his first tournament in 2012. He was so hardworking and enthusiastic that he was chosen for the Asia Cup tournament in 2016.
Sunil is a six time Man of the Series winner in state-level tournaments. He has received eight Man of the Match awards in the South Zone, national and international tournaments.
He has also received many awards from both the Karnataka government as well as the Centre for his contribution.
Sunil was born with eyesight. When he was 11 years old, a sharp wire pierced his right eye while he was playing cricket, causing intense damage. He says his sight is now slowly diminishing. He is now pursuing a degree in Mountain View College in Chikkamagalur, and is in the second year.
