New Delhi: Indian cricketer Suresh Raina on Saturday donated Rs 52 lakh to combat novel coronavirus. He has urged others also to contribute in this time of crisis.

Raina’s contribution is biggest from any Indian sportspersons across disciplines.

Raina took to Twitter to make the announcement and said that he would be transferring Rs 31 lakh to Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situation Fund (PM-VARES Fund )and Rs 21 lakh to UP CM’s Disaster Relief Fund.

On Friday, former India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has donated Rs 50 lakh for the cause.

All forms of cricket have been cancelled or postponed. IPL 2020 has also been postponed and it is highly unlikely that the cash-rich league will take place this year.
