Description : With Bangladesh, India and Afghanistan beaten, England and Pakistan will face each other on September 10 in the final of the first-ever international cricket tournament for people with disabilities.
The tournament created by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) aims to help reduce stigma and discrimination associated with disability. Through sports, cricket in this case, ICRC hopes to shift community attitudes about persons with disabilities by highlighting their skills and aptitudes. Christine Cipolla ICRC’s Head of Delegation in Bangladesh says: “There should be no barrier for people living with disabilities to play and enjoy the most popular sport in Bangladesh which is cricket.”
The tournament, which is the first of its kind, has been organized by the ICRC with the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protishthan and the Bangladesh Cricket Board. Bangladesh’s Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, officially opened the tournament.
