A lot of people are overwhelmed to see how the little boy is trying to play cricket with zeal, without any discounts for his physical condition.

More than the kid, netizens are celebrating the other children in the playground who have “treated him as an equal” despite his evident disability.
Hats off the other guys, they have treated him equal. Not to mention the boys attitude which is clearly seen. It is screaming and telling "I am born this way, but I will not stop at anything"— guruprasad (@HLGuruPrasad) December 26, 2019
Proud of those boys who treat him like normal and this is must to make that boy feel alright. If the boys shows him some kind of special treatment being handicapped then boy would not feel good. Humanity still there alive.— Kaliannan (@kaliannanc) December 26, 2019
Amazing stuff. The young boy is so determined and what’s more touching is that the other kids have included him as an equal. So much to learn for all the grown ups.— Kalyan (@kalyansview) December 26, 2019
