The Blind Cricket World Cup will be staged in Cape Town, South Africa from November 25
The captain further said that his team has won two back-to-back Blind Cricket World Cups in 2002 and 2006, but still have to make-do with whatever is available since no one is there to help them construct a proper ground.“I request the government to help us in this regard so that we can improve our game,” said Abbasi.
“We have 45 kanals of land at Ferozepur, Lahore but the Pakistan Blind Cricket Council (PBCC) is short on funds to build a stadium and hostel. A helping in this regard by the higher authorities will solve all our problems.”
Speaking about the preparations for the mega event, Abbasi revealed that training camps will be organized for the team after Ramzan.
He added that India and South Africa would be the toughest opponents in the upcoming World Cup.
