INDIA comfortably beat Pakistan to become champions in the Blind Cricket World Cup for the consecutive time, Makkal Osai reported.

The 4th One Day International World Cup, which was organised by the World Blind Cricket Council, took place in Karnataka, India.

All participants were either completely or partially blind.

The modified version of the sighted game began in Australia and soon spread with the first World Cup in 1996.

India faced off an early lead by the unbeaten Pakistan team, eventually collecting more runs to win the tournament.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the players.

> Residents in Tanjung Malim, Perak have demanded to know the whereabouts of funds which were collected to build an event hall for a Hindu temple there, Malaysia Nanban reported. The hall was built at a reported cost of RM2mil.

Donations were received from political leaders and the public for the construction of the hall, which started four years ago.

Temple devotees claimed that those in charge had not released the accounts of the donation and expenses.
