ECB logo - small version

England Visually Impaired were heavily beaten by Pakistan today in their first game of the T20 World Cup for VI Cricketers at Bangalore.

Pakistan, one of the two outstanding teams in the visually impaired game along with India, amassed 329 for one thanks in part to Nissar Ali’s 153 from 65 balls, including 26 fours and two sixes.

England could manage just 163 for seven in reply. Tomorrow they meet India who, like Pakistan, only have full-time professional players.
