Cricket has always remained a most sought after game for the Indians. The game of cricket is bequeathed to generations while the out-of-field generations retain the love by watching young cricketers on the small screen, whenever it is cricketing season.

Even disability can’t stop the youngsters to play cricket and there are many disabled enthusiasts players who have only 40-50 percent mobility , but their unconditional love for the game can’t stop them from playing the game and bring laurels for the country.

Manpreet Singh aka Manu is also one of those Indians who have unconditional love for cricket and he leaves no stone unturned to promote the game in whatever way he can.

Manu is an ardent fan of cricket, back in India, Manu has played district level cricket tournaments so even after coming to Australia he continued to play cricket.

Continuing with his love and passion for the sport, Manu is helping the disabled cricketers in India for the last 2 years and is passionately involved with them.

Sharing his experience of getting associated with the disabled cricketers “I love cricket and I love to be a part of cricket in any form. Getting associated with the  disabled cricketers was one of the best choices I have ever made. I feel great to be associated with them. There are many cricket enthusiasts who have only one hand and some have even only 40 percent mobility, but it is their love and passion about the game that gives them encouragement to play.”

“I spent around a week as a volunteer with them and provided them coaching to improve batting, balling and their over all technical skills.”

Manu also got a chance to introduce these players to Dalai Lama.

“I am blessed enough to get a chance to introduce these players to his Holiness Dalai Lama. It was one of the biggest blessings for them and it motivated the players a lot.”
