Virender Sehwag teams up with Belgian royal couple for children's rights

The King and the Queen of Belgium, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde, who are on a week-long visit to India, yesterday played cricket with Mumbai children and cricketer Virender Sehwag to advocate for children’s right to play and learn.

The royal couple and Sehwag played a cricket match with boys and girls from two Mumbai schools at the Oval Maidan here. "No matter the country we live in, we have to ensure that children grow up in a safe family environment. We need to protect girls and boys from all kind of violence and harmful practises and prevent child maltreatment," a UNICEF release quoted the Queen as saying.
