India is a land of talented cricketers. It’s not only the big cities, but often prodigious talents emerge from small town and villages too in the country. Not all of them are celebrities also, but yet they are no less talented. In a recent video, tweeted by Differently Abled Cricket Council of India, a player named G Shiva Shankara can be seen batting in the nets. His range of shots is great and it has impressed former Indian cricket team player Harbhajan Singh too. He commented “Respect” with a couple of emojis on the video of Shankara posted by Differently Abled Cricket Council of India.
“Meet #GSShiva.The range and class in his strokes are second to none. All he seeks is an opportunity and a platform to show the world his rare talent. He is not alone, there are many specially talented divyang players and at #DCCI we are striving hard for their great future. @BCCI,” Differently Abled Cricket Council of India wrote in their post.
