Blind cricketer hits ton


Share post:

It was cricket with a difference – and a new star emerged yesterday.
Haldene Forde scored a century for Barbados’ blind cricketers against Change For Change England All Stars at Queen’s Park yesterday.
Forde, a B3 player who is partially sighted, struck an unbeaten 122 off 75 balls in helping the local side to a convincing nine-wicket victory over the visitors.
