Mumbai, December 26: It is no hidden fact that Indians love cricket and that the sport is one of the uniting factors in the nation. The love for the sport is such that people break into a game of cricket as soon as they get time, irrespective of age and place. One of the favourite pastimes of school children is indulging in a match of cricket and kids playing the game on maidans. However, a video of school kids playing cricket doing rounds on social media has grabbed the attention of netizens for the sheer determination of a specially-abled child playing the game with passion under the scorching sun and sprinting using his hands and knees to play and complete runs.

The video shows few kids, probably school children (as they are in uniform) enjoying a match. But the most striking feature about the video is that a specially-abled boy is seen batting and running between the wickets by using only his hands and knees as he can't walk. However, not the one to be discouraged, the boy not only completed his runs but did so with equal passion and speed as the other boys. Specially-abled Players Are Warriors, Says Deepa Malik.

Amazing stuff. The young boy is so determined and what’s more touching is that the other kids have included him as an equal. So much to learn for all the grown ups.
