Meet the man behind India's success at blind cricket
February 20, 2017
43-year-old Patrick Rajkumar, a political science professor from Bengaluru, is the man who gets a lot of credit for the India's phenomenal success in the World Cup Cricket for the Blind.
Rajkumar, who has been coaching the country's Blind Cricket Team is neither a coach nor a sportsman. The Cricket Association of the Blind in India approached the professor in 2012 to build the team. Rajkumar had last played a sport during his college years.
Rajkumar told the team to focus on winning matches and not individual honours. He can speak eight languages and is able to communicate with the players who come from different parts of India.
He hopes that the team will inspire visually challenged persons across the country.
