Meet Team Karnataka - one of India’s newly formed teams in women’s blind cricket.  Amid the pandemic, they must now fight their way back to the top after a long break.  Can they prove themselves?

We Don’t Play Dolly

About the show:

In 2019,  an obscure team from Karnataka rocketed to India’s first-ever Blind Cricket National finals for Women. Despite their efforts, they were beaten by the eventual champion - Odisha.   Now two years later, Team Karnataka has a chance to prove themselves again.  Will they be able to avenge their loss and defeat Odisha in their upcoming showdown?

Amid the pandemic however, Team Karnataka has found it impossible to train for nearly two years.  But under their determined coach Shika Shetty, the girls have no choice but to get into shape. 

Witness Team Karnataka’s extraordinary journey of hope and perseverance, told through a team of aspiring visually impaired women who had to defy the odds throughout their entire lives, and still are today.  Their message to the world is:  We Don’t Play Dolly!

(A ‘Dolly’ is an easy catch in cricket, and was once used to belittle how women played the game).
