Commentating without looking

Zimbabwe's Dean du Plessis is the world's first and only visually impaired cricket commentator.

    Commentating a game of cricket is not something that most of us can manage.

    Doing it without the use of your sight seems near impossible.

    But here we meet a man who has built a career upon it.

    Dean du Plessis is the world's first - and only - visually impaired cricket commentator.

    Based in Zimbabwe, he uses sounds generated by the bowlers' drag and batsmen's bat to comment on proceedings.
