India win Blind World Cup, beat Pakistan by 2 wickets in thrilling final

The Indian cricket team won the blind world cup 2018 by beating arch-rivals Pakistan by 2 wickets in the final.

Pakistan posted a commanding score of 308/8 in the designated 40 overs, after India won the toss and opted to bowl first. Riding on fifty from Badar Munir and Riasat Khan’s 48, Pakistan crossed the 300-run mark in the championship clash. Pakistan skipper Nisar Ali also chipped in with a handy 47.

Chasing 309 to win in 40 overs, they rode on Sunil Ramesh’s 93 and Ajay Reddy’s 62 to¬†get the target in 38.2 overs.

India lost quick wickets towards the end of their chase but a wide-ball that went on to cross the boundary eventually sealed the deal for them.

Pakistan stormed into the final after defeating Sri Lanka by 156 runs in the semi-final on Wednesday. India beat Bangladesh by seven wickets in the semi-final to set up a title clash with Pakistan.

This was the fourth edition of the 40-over Blind Cricket World Cup competition and the arch-rivals were facing each other third time in the final. In 2006, Pakistan had defeated India to lift the trophy in Islamabad.
