WICB provides Windies Blind Cricket Team with playing kit

 

St. John's, Antigua (WICB): The West Indies Cricket Board has provided full playing kit for the West Indies Blind Cricket Team for their participation in the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup for the Blind. The team departed the Caribbean yesterday, November 28th for the tournament which will be played in Bangalore, India from December 1st to 14th. WICB has also provided the touring party with a monetary contribution for the purposes of helping to off-set tour expenses.

“We are pleased to be supporting the West Indies Blind Team as they fly the Windies flag at this world tournament. We wish them the very best as they prepare for the tournament and trust that they will be able to emulate the West Indies team in the ICC World Twenty20 Tournament and bring the trophy back to the Caribbean,” WICB President Dr. Julian Hunte said.

“This initiative is part of our ongoing commitment towards lending support to the development and promotion of blind cricket in the Caribbean,” Dr. Hunte added. “We are thankful for the assistance of the WICB as it has aided significantly in ensuring that the team participates in this critical world tournament,” said secretary of the West Indies Cricket Council for the Blind Bhawani Persaud.
