Several local dignitaries recently attended an inspiring event in Pinner that showcased the remarkable talents of the visually impaired Indian national men’s and women’s cricket teams.

The demonstration of visually impaired cricket, held at Harrow Arts Centre playing fields on Sunday, August 27, highlighted the dedication, skill and resilience of athletes who have overcome challenges to excel in the world of cricket.

This comes after the women’s team won the International Tournament held in Birmingham in August.

Mayor of Harrow councillor Ramji Chauhan; Bob Blackman, MP for Harrow East; councillor Kanti Rabadia; and councillor Matthew Goodwin-Freeman were all in attendance.

Mayor Chauhan told Pinnernews: “It was a celebration of the human spirit’s indomitable strength and how barriers can be broken, as well as to celebrate the triumphs of athletes regardless of their abilities.

“The event was a testament to the fact that in the realm of sports, determination, passion and teamwork are what truly define greatness.”
