Boy, 11, Born Without Arms Excels at Cricket

A 11-year-old British boy is winning praise as a star cricketer—despite having no arms from the elbow down.

Spin bowler Kearan Tongue-Gibbs, was born with no forearms. But amazingly he grips the ball in the fold of his arm before whizzing down accurate deliveries.

He has been recognized by the England and Wales Cricket Board as a promising disabilities player and is having coaching at Birmingham's Edgbaston Test ground.

Kearan's talent was first spotted by relatives during holiday beach cricket games and he now plays for his local club in Redditch, Worcs.

"I just go out to play as well as I can," he said.
