The hosting rights for the Blind Cricket World Cup 2024 have been secured by Pakistan.
According to reports in the local media, at its 24th annual general meeting, the World Blind Cricket board selected the cricket-loving country to host the 2018 world title.
The premier sporting event designed for participants who are blind or partially sighted will begin on November 18, 2024, and the tournament’s finale will be held on December 3 in honor of International Day of Disabled Persons.
For the current Blind Cricket T-20 World Cup, India recently declined to grant Pakistani blind athletes visas due to political reasons.
Additionally, World Blind Cricket Ltd. passed a resolution criticizing India for denying blind Pakistani players visas. Team Pakistan continued to be one of the top teams at the Blind Cricket World Cup and a seven-time finalist.
Syed Sultan Shah, the chairman of the Pakistan Blind Cricket Council, was also overwhelmingly chosen to serve a two-year term as the next president of the WBCL at the meeting on Friday.
