The All India Cricket Association for the Physically Challenged (AICAPC) yesterday announced its squad for the upcoming six-nation T20 Physical Disability World Series which will be held from August 3 to 13 in England. The team will appear in its maiden World Series after receiving recognition from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
It has not been an easy journey for the team which, even after getting recognition from the BCCI, lack funds. AICAPC president and former Indian skipper late Ajit Wadekar’s younger brother Ashok is hopeful of receiving financial help from the Indian cricket board. “We have to manage the finance and we will be able to do it. Hopefully, once the [BCCI] elections take place, we will get financial help,” he told mid-day yesterday during the announcement of the squad at the Mumbai Cricket Association Club, Bandra Kurla Complex.
