The Indian women’s blind cricket team secured a massive win over Nepal in the fourth T20, sealing the bilateral series at 3-1 with one match remaining. Harmanpreet, the brand ambassador for women’s blind cricket, alongside Rajeshwari and Jemimah, lauded the Indian team for both their victory against Nepal and their gold medal achievement in the IBSA World Games. Despite Nepal’s resurgence in the third T20, India bounced back in the fourth, solidifying their series win.
Mahantesh Kivadasannavar, CABI chairman, hailed the meeting as an ecstatic moment for the visually impaired team. Expressing delight, he shared how their team enthusiastically cheered for India, especially when they reached 400 runs.
“Our girls had the chance to sit and cheer for the Indian women’s team. When the Indian team hit the 400th run we were there cheering for our team. It was a delightful moment for the Blind Women’s cricket team. Harmanpreet was very happy to meet our visually impaired girls and was willing to extend all possible support,” Mahantesh expressed.
The forthcoming fifth T20 between India and Nepal promises another thrilling encounter.
