The Pakistan Cricket Board on Wednesday night time introduced its cricketers and workers will play their half within the battle in opposition to COVID-19 by making contributions to the federal government’s emergency fund.

The centrally contracted gamers will collectively donate PKR5million to the fund.

Along with the cricketers’ contribution, PCB workers as much as the rank of Senior Managers will donate someday’s wage, whereas the Basic Managers and above will donate two days’ wage.

Moreover, the PCB, as an establishment, will match the contribution of its workers to the federal government fund.

PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani stated right here, “The Pakistan Cricket Board has always stood with the people of Pakistan in desperate times. This is one of the gravest, most challenging and unprecedented times, which our local and federal governments and health workers are having to face with.”

“While we continue to pray for the wellbeing and success of our health workers so that normality returns to our society, we at the PCB are making a small contribution which will support the government in its endeavours against the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“I am fully aware like a lot of other generous people in our society, our cricketers and staff are privately supporting the local governments and various other charities by making contributions in their own ways. We are grateful to them for their valuable support.”

“The success of nations is measured by how they come together in difficult times, and this is one such moment when we all must stand united.”

“On behalf of the PCB, I once again urge the people of Pakistan to seriously take all precautionary measures as these have been designed for their and their loved ones’ safety. We are a resilient nation and I have no doubt we will defeat this pandemic together.”
