Dilmah Trophy Blind Cricket Tournament

The Blind Cricket Tournament is part of Dilmah and the MJF Charitable Foundation’s commitment to highlighting the extraordinary talents of the visually impaired, and people with disabilities as a whole. Since 2006, Dilmah and the MJF Charitable Foundation has sponsored the only current Blind Cricket Tournament in Sri Lanka. Working with the Sri Lanka Cricket Association for the Visually Handicapped (SLCAVH), the tournament is organized annually and acts as ‘the tournament’ to select the National team to represent Sri Lanka at the Blind Cricket World Cup every four years.

In January 2018, Dilmah sponsored Sri Lanka’s National Blind Cricket team for the Blind Cricket World Cup held in Ajman, UAE. The team came 3rd losing to Pakistan, and winners were India.
