KARACHI: Abdul Razzaq-led Pakistan blind cricket team clinched the three-match T20 series against India 2-1 after winning the 3rd game by five wickets at the Bagh-e-Jinnah, Lahore.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, India piled up a competitive 162 for three in their 20 overs.

“The one-day series will be really challenging for us. They (India) have a lot of new players and it can be productive for them.”
