    England Visually Impaired lose to India

    England were on the wrong side of the result when they slumped to a 10-wicket loss against host side India in the Blind World Cup.

    England slumped to a 10-wicket loss against host side India in their third Blind World Cup group match.

    Captain Luke Sugg decided to bat first after winning the toss and openers Justin Hollingsworth and Nathan Foy put on 26 before Foy departed for seven, caught off the bowling of Venkateswara Rao.

    Hollingsworth added another seven before his dismissal in the fourth over. 

    From then on England struggled to get a foothold in the innings, losing the wickets of Matthew Dean, Peter Blueitt and Matthew Page for 16 runs.

    Skipper Sugg looked to steady the ship and, together with England's top scorer Ed Hossell, put on 61 for the sixth wicket.

    Sugg and Amin Afshari were dismissed in consecutive overs while Hossell was run out for 57. Simon Ledwith and Mark Turnham also departed in the same fashion and England were all out for 158 two balls shy of their 20 overs.

    India's top order did the damage in their reply as openers Sukhram Majhi (67) and Ganesh Babubhai Mundakar (78) successfully chased 159 with nine overs to spare.
