Sport, according to the Oxford Dictionary, is ‘an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.’ Does it say you need to be holding a bat and a ball? Does it say you need to be a male? Does it say you can’t be differently abled?
No. It doesn’t. Just like Cricket; Golf, Rowing, Rugby and Waterpolo are also sports. Women teams are just as capable and skilled. The differently abled are blessed with the most unique talents.
