Harbhajan Singh has come forward to sponsor clothing of the Indian disabled cricket team that will tour Afghanistan next month for a tri-series (July 20 to 30) where Pakistan will be third participating team.
The veteran spinner was approached by Ravi Chauhan, secretary of the Physically Challenged Cricket Association of India (PCCAI) after getting an invitation to participate in the tournament by the Afghanistan Cricket Board.
"We regularly update Harbhajan about the matches our boys play. I asked him if he could sponsor kits and he immediately agreed. Every will get a pair each of the practice kit, travelling clothes and match colours. We are grateful to Harbhajan for his help. It would have cost us around R3 lakh had we made kits for the tour," Chauhan told mid-day from New Delhi.
India's limited overs skipper MS Dhoni had sponsored the PCCAI team that won the bilateral series 6-0 in South Africa in 2014.
