    Sa’ad apart from what Phil said … This is Pakistan … we care much for the VVIP guests coming in rather the players … Hopefully players enjoyed too … :)

    They are not 100% blind… its a degree of blindness that render’s a person’s vision useless for practical work. They still have 2% o 3% vision in broad daylight and are helped by sound. Plus, I think, this opening show was meant more for the sponsors and patrons to the tournament rather than the children themselves.

    Lastly, Forza Pakistan! :D Good luck to all the participants :)
