Sachin Tendulkar congratulates India for winning Blind Cricket World Cup

Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar congratulated the Indian team that defeated the defending champions Pakistan to win the fourth Cricket World Cup for the Blind at Cape Town, South Africa on Sunday.

Tendulkar, who was part of the ICC World Cup 2011-winning Indian team, tweeted his wishes on Monday.

 

 

 

 

In reply to Pakistan’s 389, India scored 392 with two balls to spare. Except for the opening game against Pakistan, India had won all their leagues games.

India-Pakistan rivalry even extends to this format. In the third Blind Cricket World Cup held in Islamabad, Pakistan defeated India in the final to be the Blind World Cup Cricket Champions for the second time. In fact, in the first Twenty20 Blind Cricket World Cup that was held in Bengaluru in 2012, India beat Pakistan by 29 runs in the final to lift the title.

Inspirational, indeed but when it’s Pakistan, the victory is even more sweeter.
