Cricket match for specially-abled persons held at Baramulla

BARAMULLA: Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities and a non-governmental organisation HOPE on Friday organised a T-10 cricket match in which specially-abled persons participated.
The match was played between Baramulla Tigers and Kupwara Lions at Showkat Ali Stadium in Government Degree College, Baramulla.
Played under the theme ‘know me for my abilities, not my disability’, the idea was to bring these persons as much closer to the society as possible and break the stigma if any associated with the disability.
A special presentation was held wherein Executive Director, Hope Disability Centre Sami-u-llah Wani gave a brief overview of the event.
The cricket match was won by Baramulla Tigers. Momentos were given away to the players.
A carom competition was also held between Baramulla Tigers and Kupwara Lions which was won by Baramulla Tigers.
