Published on 20 June, 2017 at 4:59 pm By

The road to success is not a cake walk. It has challenges and obstacles waiting on every turn. Especially when a person is differently-abled, the difficulty level increases. This realization has paved the path for a cricket academy for hearing and speech impaired aspiring cricketers.

Imran Shaikh, former captain of the Indian Deaf Cricket Team, has decided to not let anyone else go through the hardships he did to get the blue jersey of Indian cricket team. To ease the process of training special kids, he is on his way to starting a cricket coaching academy with the New Era School at their Deaf Cricket Club.

The talented cricketer has brought laurels for the country under his captaincy. The Indian Deaf Cricket Team lifted the Asia Cup and 2005’s Deaf World Cup. However, the game couldn’t help him earn enough to sustain, therefore, Imran runs a sprouts stall in Vadodara.

Imran talks about the financial issues faced by young cricketers filled with talent up to the brim,

I always wanted to coaching children who could not pay huge fees for academies. When I was training as a young cricketer, I had faced many difficulties. The coach needed to do extra work to teach me. But not everyone wants to do this. That’s why, I decided to start an academy where disabled children will be taught cricket. They have a lot of talent and just need some guidance. I will also coach other kids.



 

Imran’s cricket academy will be India’s first cricket coaching center for deaf and mute children. He is facing financial challenges to get his academy up and about. However, nothing seems to deter the spirit of this resilient man. He adds,
