Disability not a difficulty


“I used to play gully cricket back in the schooldays and that was fun. But never did I even dream of representing my country in an international tournament,” an emotional Alam Khan, who seemed to be breathing heavy, told reporters.

The enormity of the achievement was evident in the way Alam spoke; he took his time and cautiously chose his words. Alam is going to lead Bangladesh in the ICRC International Cricket Tournament for People with Physical Disabilities, which begins at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur today and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is expected to inaugurate the tournament.
