- Inside the lives of the world's first Street Child Cricket World Cup champions
Md Irfan, 14, takes a break after a hectic practice session in the days leading up to the Street Child World Cup in England. Irfan loves to sketch, a skill he has picked up from his mother, and aspires to become a cartoonist. It doesn’t sit well with his father, who earns Rs 300 a day by stitching bags and wants Irfan to take up a job with a bank. His parents have often fought over Irfan’s aspirations and his mother had once thrown away his sketching kit and art medals in fear of his father. But he seems to have come around once Irfan started to win prizes at art competitions; he would still prefer his son to have the financial stability that a bank job affords, but feels as proud as his mother while showing off the medal and the fair play award the 14-year-old has brought back from London.
