Although Pakistan scored a whopping 389, our Indian team showcased their prodigious skills and chased the total of 389 to win the final match.

Good news is that each of these players were given a cheque of Rs. 5 Lakh back in India by Sports Minister Sarbananda Sonowal. In addition they have been promised 2 Lakh more from Cabinet minister for Social Justice and Empowerment, Thawar Chand Gehlot.

Gehlot and Sonowal along with Cabinet Minister Ananth Kumar, welcomed the victorious team at the Indira Gandhi International Airport.

Hats off to these brilliant players for making Indians believe in the qualities of those who are ‘differently-abled!’

Meet the Team Members who were personally congratulated by none other than our PM Modiji.
