ISLAMABAD -  Pakistan blind cricket team captain Abdul Razzaq desired to retire after this year's World Cup to be played in December at Bangalore, India.

Razzaq, who will be leading the team to play India in March in Chennai from March 10, said on Tuesday that he would run an academy of his own for blind cricketers at Lahore after his retirement.

"I want to give the upcoming talented youngsters a chance to take my place after my retirement," he said. Pakistan will leave for India on March 8 where they will play three one day matches during March 10-13 while the Twenty 20 matches are scheduled for March 14-17. "Indian team can give us a tough time in the World Cup so this series is very important for us," Razzaq said.

Talking about the future of Pakistan blind cricket he said: "We have been unbeaten since 2006 and are ruling the world of blind cricket."

Admiring the efforts of Pakistan Blind Cricket Council (PBCC), he said they are doing a very good job with limited resources at their disposal as they organise five to six international events every year and give us maximum club matches.

Razzaq called for permanent jobs for blind cricketers in Pakistan. "I request the departments to provide jobs to the blind as per their skill and education so that they can lead an independent life like other ordinary players," he concluded.
