Pat Cummins donates $50,000 to the PM Cares Fund to battle Covid-19. Australia fast bowler and Kolkata Knight Riders actor Pat Cummins announced on Monday that. He is contributing $50,000 to the PM Cares Fund to benefit India’s battle against Covid-19. Moreover, Cummins encouraged his fellow Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 to extend help. Pat Cummins said in a social media statement that the donation has made to the PM Cares Fund primarily to buy oxygen supply for India’s hospitals. Cummins acquired by KKR in 2020 for Rs 15.5 crore, has a key member of the two-time champion team. The Australia fast bowler has appeared in all five of KKR’s IPL 2021 matches.
Cummins took to social media to express his sadness at seeing the plight of people beyond the bio-bubbles of IPL in the world. IPL 2021 is being held in bio-bubble conditions in six major cities across India. Which has severely impacted the second phase of Covid-19. However, India is a country I’ve grown to adore over the years, and the people here are among the warmest and kindest I’ve met. It saddens me deeply to know that so many people are hurting so much at this moment, Cummins says.
The coronavirus caseload and the death toll in India set new highs;
There has some debate about whether it is acceptable to continue IPL while Covid-19 infection rates remain high. As gamers, we are fortunate to have access to a forum that enables us to influence millions of people for good. With this in mind, I made a donation to the PM Cares Fund. Which will use to buy oxygen supplies for India’s hospitals.
I invite my fellow IPL players to donate, as well as everyone else around the world. Who has influenced by India’s love and kindness. I’m going to start with $50,000. For the fifth day in a row. Hence, The coronavirus caseload and the death toll in India set new highs. With over 3.52 lakh Covid-19 cases and 2,812 deaths in a single day. Hospitals said they were in distress as a result of the surge in Covid-19 positive admissions with most hospitals packed and running out of medical oxygen to handle critical patients.
