India beat Pakistan in thriller to win 2018 Blind Cricket World Cup

India beat arch-rivals Pakistan by two wickets in Blind Cricket World Cup final on Saturday at Sharjah to become champions for the second time.

Chasing a steep 309 for the win, Sunil Ramesh’s 93 and captain Ajay Reddy’s 63 led India in their run-chase as they reached the target with more than an over to spare. Earlier in the group stages, India had beaten Pakistan by seven wickets.

Pakistan posted a massive score of 308/8 in 40 overs, after India won the toss and opted to bowl first. A fifty from Badar Munir and Riasat Khan’s 48 helped Pakistan cross the 300-run mark. The skipper Nisar Ali also chipped in with a handy 47. But they weren’t able to stop the defending champions.
