So what do you expect from an India-Pakistan clash in a World Cup? A stadium packed to the rafters, unmatched noise from the crowd and of course, an Indian win. Alas, none of the three were anywhere to be seen on Wednesday at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, venue for the match involving the two arch-rivals in T20 World Cup for the blind.

Deepak Malik bowls at a speed of 140km/hr and is regarded as the world’s fastest bowler. He also holds the record of the fastest half-century in the ODI World Cups. Another talented lad, Rambir Singh, holds the record for the most economical bowling (at under six runs per over) in Asia Cup T20. Both are young and promising but the most cruel part is that they cannot see. 


The two are visually impaired.
