Meanwhile, the number of people being affected to and dead of ‘coronavas’ virus worldwide has been 1 million 25 thousand. Because of this high escalation of people being affected to Covid-19, the community of cricketers in the England has decided to expand their financial support to help the government fight against the “invasion” of Covid-19. Previously, the cricket community in Pakistan had also taken their actions to promote the tough time of fighting over Covid-19 in their country. In this deal, each cricket player will donate part of their salary to create a supporting Covid-19 fund for their office.
For the very first time, they made a donation of 1 million pounds (around 11 million Bangladesh). All the players revealed that this sum of money will be used to support any effective campaigns being held to prevent the large spread of Covid-19. However, in the past, there had been a shameful scandal happening in England cricket community when cricketers in this country also cut down on their salary to make a donation to Covid-19 campaigns. To successfully fight against Corona, England cricket board has committed to ECB to cut down half of their players’ salary for making a donation, especially convince cricket superstars to share hands with the whole nation. However, there had been conflicts between players, organizers and other staff about the amount of money that should be donated. Some players found this amount of money too much as they would also be the victims of Covid-19 financially.
