Apart from this, the cricketer also encouraged others to come forward and contribute.
Uttarakhand is struggling with floods after a portion of the Nanda Devi glacier broke off in Chamoli district of the state on Sunday.
The sudden flood in the middle of the day in the Dhauli Ganga, Rishi Ganga and Alaknanda rivers, all intricately linked tributaries of the Ganga, triggered widespread panic and large-scale devastation in the high mountain areas.
