Being the defending champions of the coveted title, Blind Cricket World Cup, India have certainly lived up to the spirits of defending that honour so far in the tournament. After beating Sri Lanka and Pakistan in their first two games, India secured their third victory of the contest with a 10-wicket win over Bangladesh. The credit of the triumph goes to both skipper Ajay Reddy and Sunil Ramesh who scored magnificent hundreds that depicted the dominance of the defending champions.
Story of a domineering effort
Bangladeshi skipper won the toss and opted to bat first, but their batters failed to take the advantage of guiding their team towards a huge first innings total. They were folded for a total of 226 runs in their allotted quota of 40 overs. The Indian bowlers executed their plans very well as they restricted the opposition team to that score. India’s skipper Reddy was the star with the ball who picked up four wickets and gave away just 37 runs, with his fine bowling effort.
In reply to their strong bowling performance, the Indian openers came out with the right mindset and the intent was positive to score runs. Reddy displayed an absolute stunning all-round match-winning performance to guide his team towards the win with a fine century that too off just 60 balls which included 14 boundary strokes.
His opening companion Ramesh also laid out an absolute commanding effort with a great hundred in an aggressive manner hitting 17 boundaries on his way. It will not be wrong to say that, this victory was due to the incredible and outstanding application of the Indian openers.
The Indian team refused to travel to Pakistan, so their matches are being hosted in the UAE, whereas the rest of games are being contested in Pakistan and that too in full spirits of the game. India will now move on to face Nepal on January 14 in their last match in the group stages and will be hoping to end the initial round on a winning note.
