Having recently seen the success and the impact that the first season of the National Divyang
Cup T20 had in the lives of these Divyang cricketers and the community, Indian Bank sees this as an opportunity to contribute to a good cause.
On the occasion, Dr (HC) Deepa Malik said, “It is a humongous event where 400 plus cricketers with different type of disabilities will exhibit their skills. It is a true celebration of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav where equal opportunities for all and a more inclusive society are created for everyone. A few years ago, even Women’s Cricket was struggling for recognition but today the world has witnessed their ability. I’m sure Divyang Cricket will also get the much-deserved limelight of mainstream sports.”
Speaking on the occasion Mr Ravi Chauhan, Secretary of DCCI, further added, “We are delighted to host the second season of Sardar Patel National Divyang Cup T20, and let me tell you that DCCI will leave no stone unturned to make it a memorable event for everyone concerned. We are taking several steps to raise the profile of the sport right from the grassroots level and hosting the tournament will further boost the popularity of the sport in the country. I’m sure many cricketers will go on to represent the country and make everyone proud.”
Shri Imran Amin Siddiqui, Executive Director, of Indian Bank, added, “Our Bank has
always stayed at the forefront of supporting the needy sections of society. The Divyang
Cricketers, playing here instil in us, a sense of pride, with their enthusiasm and commitment. The cricket lovers in the country would certainly appreciate these talents and their performance for the next 8 days”. (ANI)
