Blind Cricket profile: Mohammed Farhan
January 22, 2017
Farhan belongs to Nilambur in Kerala. He was inspired by blind cricket when he saw his seniors from school play cricket.
He played his first tournament while in school in 2004 at a state tournament at Ernakulam, and is a B2, or partially blind, category player.
Farhan is especially thrilled about having played his first international tournament against a strong team like Australia in 2014.
A motivated player, he has won 10 Man of the Series awards in the state-level tournaments he has played in.
After India's win in the 2014 World Cup, he was awarded Rs seven lakh by the central government.
