The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has provided full playing kits for the West Indies Blind Cricket Team for their participation in the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup for the Blind in India later this month.

The WICB also provided the touring party with monetary contribution.

“We are pleased to support the West Indies Blind Team as they fly the West Indies flag at this world tournament. We wish them the very best as they prepare for the tournament and trust that they will be able to emulate the West Indies team in the ICC World Twenty20 Tournament and bring the trophy back to the Caribbean,” WICB President Dr. Julian Hunte said.

“This part of our ongoing commitment towards lending support to the development and promotion of blind cricket in the Caribbean,” he added.
