Unified body for differently-abled cricketers formed

Groups running differently-abled cricket have joined hands to form DCCI, which was needed to get BCCI recognition.

The Differently-Abled Cricket Council of India (DCCI) has been formed, a move that could pave way for the physically challenged cricketers to play under the BCCI logo.

Groups running differently-abled cricket have joined hands to form DCCI, which was needed to get BCCI recognition.

"The dream of Differently-Abled cricket players to play with the BCCI logo and represent India in recognized International tournaments may come true very soon.

"With firm support from different groups running differently-abled cricket, the DCCI has been formed under the Karnataka Societies Registration Act,” a media release stated.

Mahantesh GK, known for his contribution towards blind cricket, was unanimously elected as DCCI President.

Ravi Chauhan, representing the Physically Challenged Cricket Association of India, Squadron leader (Retd) Abhai Pratap Singh representing Wheelchair Cricket India Association and Sumit Jain representing IDCA decided to come together to form a common body.

It said that the suggestion came from BCCI Secretary Jay Shah in a recent meeting with all the stake holders of disability cricket.
