Wasim Khan said that he had decided to personally make a donation to support those players, scorers match officials, and ground staff who are in dire need of financial help.
He further said “This small contribution is to help the Chairman’s Welfare Fund that is already in place and to show solidarity with him as we look to give as much support to those who are facing hardships in these tough economic crises.
