Here is PM Narendra Modi’s tweet for India Blind team on winning the Blind T20 World Cup:


It was captain Ajay Kumar Reddy who led from the front with a terrific century, along with a ton from batter Sunil Ramesh. Batting first, India put up 277 runs on the scoreboard for the loss of only two wickets in 20 overs. Sunil Ramesh scored 136 runs, while Reddy ended up with 100 runs.

Opener Venkareswara was dismissed as early as in the 4th over which also saw Meena getting dismissed. Even after the double blow, Ramesh and Reddy counterattacked. This was Ramesh’s third hundred of the tournament. The two Indian batters put on an iconic unbeaten 248-run stand with Ramesh smashing 136 runs in 63 balls and Reddy whacking 100 runs from 50 balls.

Chasing this colossal target of 278 runs, Bangladesh managed to score 153 runs in the quota of 20 overs. Bangladesh openers, Salman and Ashiqur Rahman, gave a decent start to their team, but it was never going to be enough to challenge India’s mammoth total.

The pressure got the Bangladeshi batters and eventually, they lost the way after a 56-run opening stand. For Bangladesh Salman was their top-scorer with 77 runs. Salman also finished as the highest run-getter of the tournament with 425 runs in 7 innings.
