Reason behind Gavaskar's ₹59 lakh donation for Covid-19 relief

Apr 07, 2020 19:41 IST

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has donated ₹59 lakh for the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. The little master donated ₹35 lakh for the PM Cares fund while ₹24 lakh was given to Maharastra Chief Minister's fund. The donation was made anonymously but according to his son & former India cricketer Rohan, since Sunny G hit 35 international hundreds for India, he donated the equivalent to the national fund. Gavaskar while playing domestic cricket for Mumbai hit 24 tons, therefore, made the donation of ₹24 lakh for his state.
