AFP, London

Rana, who is on Nepal’s provisional squad list for the Blind Cricket World Cup in Bangalore, India, in November, says they have had no advice on special diets and have not been provided with footwear and clothing for the Games.

He admitted that he did not expect to be among the medals but said getting to London was a major personal victory.

“I feel very proud of my accomplishments. Despite being blind, I will be able to compete carrying the flag of my country,” he said.
