Covid-19: English cricketers donate 500,000 pounds

Apr 04, 2020 12:12 IST

In the hour of need, England's star cricketers have agreed to make an initial donation worth 500,000 pounds to the England and Wales Cricket Board. The contribution which came in response to the financial crisis that has taken hit the sport is equivalent to the 20 percent reduction in the monthly retainers of the cricketers for the next three months. Meanwhile, women's team also volunteered for salary reduction for the next three months and ECB's chief executive Tom Harrison opted for a 25 percent pay cut.
