In a tri-nation T20 series, Pakistan’s blind cricket team defeats India

On Saturday, Pakistan’s team defeated India by 58 runs at Dhaka’s Bashundhara Sports Complex in a tri-nation blind cricket Twenty20 series. All three teams will face each other twice in the triangular series, which includes hosts Bangladesh, and the best two teams will meet in the final set on April 8.

The match was originally scheduled for April 4, but was later rescheduled for April 3 for undisclosed reasons. On April 5, the two teams will meet again. Badar Munir’s 27-ball half-century, which included four sixes, helped Pakistan set a target of 186 runs while batting first.
