Pakistan off to a winning start in Blind Cricket World Cup


LAHORE: Pakistan started their Blind Cricket World Cup campaign on a winning note by beating Bangladesh in the opening game of the tournament at Gaddafi Stadium on Monday.

Pakistan were given a target of 208 after the Green Shirts won the toss and put Bangladesh in to bat first in the 40-overs game.

The hosts chased down the total in 17 overs, driven by a brilliant century by Badar Munir, who was named Man of the Match for his quickfire 145.

The tournament includes teams from cricket-playing nations such as Australia, England and India. However, only teams from Bangladesh and Nepal have agreed to play in Pakistan for now, while matches with other countries are scheduled to be held in UAE.
