It won’t be a trivialization to say that cricket is worshiped in India. Fans in the country are passionate about the sport and a clip going viral on the internet is a testimony of that.
Recently, an IFS officer Sudha Ramen took to her official twitter handle to share a video clip of kids playing cricket. The accent of the clip was a physically challenged boy batting during the game with his mates.
The video was captioned, "Left me speechless! #DeterminedMind A must watch to all those who love cricket and even those who don't like it. Got to see this in FB, would love to know the details of this boy."
With over 43.3k views, the video begins with a kid tossing the ball at the physically challenged kid, who hits a good shot and then takes a run. His zeal and excitement to play cricket left the internet motivated.
Sudha also went on to share with her followers that she came across the video on Facebook and asked the Twitterati to share the details of the boy.

Proud of those boys who treat him like normal and this is must to make that boy feel alright. If the boys shows him some kind of special treatment being handicapped then boy would not feel good. Humanity still there alive.— Kaliannan (@kaliannanc) December 26, 2019
Several twitter users eulogised the kid for his enthusiasm and called him a hero, while others complimented the other kids for treating him as their equal.
One user wrote, "Kudos to the real hero and all other kids toofor including him in team." Another user wrote, "All kids including the daredevil deserve huge respect." Many people also requested the officer to share details of the boy so they could sponsor him.
