He says that there were few opportunies then for playing Blind Cricket and geng recognised. In 2012 a friend told him about the selecons taking place for blind cricketers to play in the state team. He went there and played very well, and got selected for the State team by the Cricket Associaon for the Blind in Bengal. He played for the state in the Naonals in 2013 which was conducted in Bangalore. He was selected for the T20 bi-lateral series against Australia and played for the Indian team.

For quite a long me aer this he did not get an opportunity to play for India and had to bide his me. In the meanme he played many matches in the Naonals and did very well.

He looks forward to play in this World Cup and do well. He looks forward to connue playing for the Indian team in many more internaonal tournaments.

He says he got excellent support from his family and friends for playing cricket. He is grateful to them for that. He wants to get a good job and help his family in the future. He also wants to help other blind persons to take up cricket and bring fame and glory to his state and country. A noble thought indeed! But now to Pakistan and Dubai and a WIN in the World Cup!
