India skipper Ajay Reddy's all-round showing helped the defending champions beat Bangladesh by 10 wickets in the ongoing Blind Cricket World Cup on Saturday (January 13).

India continue to hold the No. 1 spot in the points table as Reddy and Sunil Ramesh’s impressive opening stand sealed the deal with 21.2 overs to spare.

Electing to bat, Bangladesh scored 226 for eight in the stipulated 40 overs. While Reddy claimed four wickets, Deepak Malik and Pankaj Bhue scalped two apiece.

In reply, India chased down the target in just 18.4 overs. Reddy (B2 - blind level 2) scored an unbeaten 101 off 60 balls with 14 fours while Sunil Ramesh (B3 - blind level 3) struck 105 off 57 balls with the help of 17 boundaries.

As expected, Ajay Kumar Reddy was adjudged Man of the Match. Earlier in the tournament, India had defeated Pakistan by seven wickets. India are now slated to face Nepal on Sunday (January 14).
