New Delhi: In an innovative move towards polio eradication, the Indian and Pakistan cricket teams, though fierce rivals on the field, will be united in their mission to “bowl out polio” when they clash for the third One-Day International here today.
“We need to ensure a world free of polio paralysis for children. We need to win against polio, to ‘Bowl Out Polio’,” said Pakistani cricket stars Yonous Khan and Imran Farhat, who yesterday administered polio drops to children here and joined the appeal for eradication of the debilitating disease.
The two teams will wear ribbons with ‘Bowl Out Polio’ when they play the One Day International today.
The electronic periphery boards at the Ferozshah Kotla grounds will flash the message of “Bowl Out Polio”. A hundred children will also be at the stands wearing yellow jackets with messages against polio.
