Kolkata :  Close on the heels of India clinching the Blind Cricket World Cup, Committee of Administrators (COA) chief Vinod Rai on Saturday said the BCCI would soon announce a cash prize for the players, adding they are also trying to get them jobs.

"Day before yesterday the general secretary of the Blind Cricketers' Association had a meeting. He had approached me. I fixed a meeting with BCCI and the CEO (Rahul Johri).

"They are going to make an announcement about a certain amount which has been set aside, very soon. For the encouragement of this team. And two, to develop blind cricket. It's being done," Rai told reporters on the sidelines of an event here.

India defeated Pakistan by two wickets. After Pakistan posted 308/8 in 40 overs, India reached home losing eight wickets in 38.2 overs.

"Their performance has been remarkable. Woh hamare nigrani mein aa gaye hain (They have come into our radar). But it's a matter of three days back only," Rai said.
