KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Wednesday its cricketers and staff would play their part in the fight against COVID-19 by making contributions to the government’s emergency fund.

The centrally contracted players will collectively donate Ps5 million to the fund, PCB staff up to the rank of Senior Managers will donate their one-day salary, while the General Managers and above will donate two days’ salary.

Furthermore, the PCB, as an institution, will match the contribution of its staff to the government fund. PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani said: “The Pakistan Cricket Board has always stood with the people of Pakistan in desperate times. This is one of the gravest, most challenging and unprecedented times, which our local and federal governments and health workers are having to face with.

“While we continue to pray for the wellbeing and success of our health workers so that normality returns to our society, we at the PCB are making a small contribution which will support the government in its endeavours against the COVID-19 pandemic.”
