India deaf cricket team displayed an all-around show to lift the DICC T20 Champions Trophy 2022 by defeating South Africa by 39 runs in the summit clash at Malek Stadium in UAE.
The Indian deaf cricket team displayed an all-round show with both bat & ball to post a competitive target of 141 runs against the South African team. Batting first, India hit all corners of the park to post a good 140 runs target in the allotted 20 overs with the loss of four wickets. Virendra Singh (50*) along with Indrajeet Yadav (40) laid the foundation for India’s win by posting a total of 140 runs. The duo made sure that their crucial knocks help their side to win the final of the DICC T20 Champions Trophy 2022.
Chasing 141 runs target, South Africa was never into the game as they lost wickets like a pack of cards. Indian bowlers were successful in scalping all 10 wickets & denying them a win in the summit clash of the tournament. The only player who could deliver for South Africa was Du Plessis who scored 23 runs for his team. However, single-handedly he couldn’t do much for his team as a result their innings were soon wrapped up for 101 runs, registering 39 runs win.
On winning the tournament, the CEO of the India deaf Cricket Association (IDCA) said, “It was a very crucial tournament for the IDCA team as this was their first International tournament in the post-COVID-19 era. The last time they played an International tournament was back in 2018 which was hosted in India. The tournament requires great leadership by the captain supported by the coaches such as MP Singh, & Dev Dutt. The way the entire Indian team showed grit & determination to emerge victorious in the league stage & knockout fixtures is truly commendable. Proud moment for India Deaf Cricket.”
The DICC T20 Champions trophy 2022 was hosted in Ajman, UAE from October 1 to 9, 2022 by the DICC managing committee headed by Chairman Stefan Pichowski. The India Deaf Cricket Association (IDCA) also extended thanks to the organizers for seamlessly & effectively conducting the tournament.
