Manoj Tiwary, India’s 30-year-old right-handed batsman joined hands with Udaan, which is a joint initiative by Society For Welfare Of Children & Civilian Welfare Foundation to salute and showcase the passion of the disabled persons of our society at large. He attended a charity football match with disabled players. Cricketers have often taken to the field and even played other sports for a good cause. Many Indian and foreign cricketers have done this before. Tiwary is regarded as one of the finest batsmen to emerge from India in the last few years. However, he is yet to make a mark in international cricket. Tiwary is still to make his Test debut for India. He doing his bit for social causes is praiseworthy.
