Our Results and Achievements


This Council has organized eight (8) major National Tournaments besides Two Double-Wicket Tournaments since 1997.

We are proud that the Pakistani Blind Cricket Team participated in the 1st World Cup Cricket for the Blind held in Delhi, India in 1998 and stood runners-up.

The Pakistan Blind Cricket Team also set five World Records in that World Cup.

Pakistan Blind Cricket Team tour to South Africa in 2000, organised by this Council, produced a 6-0 win for Pakistan - a record in the history of the cricket for the blind. Several other World Records were set there.
