Kolkata: India and Bangladesh both are divided by barriers, but cricket has brought two countries together as the physically challenged national cricketers took part in Maitree Cup played in Kolkata. The tournament took place at the Vivekananda Park form November 10 to November 12. This is for the first time that an international tournament like this happened in the City of Joy.

The Physically Challenged cricketers of India, Bangladesh and other six nations will take part in the Asia Cup. The neighboring countries faced each other ahead of that to prepare themselves for the grand tournament.” We have played these matches to prepare for the forthcoming Asia Cup. Though the team has lost all three matches against Bangladesh, but I am happy with my team’s performance. The team management had given chances to seven or eight new players to know their capabilities, on the other hand Bangladesh came to play with their full squad,” said Indian cricket team captain Subhro Jowardar while talking to www.xtratime.in
