“Although many other countries are still being affected by the pandemic, the situation in India right now is particularly severe. I will do my part to bring awareness and financial assistance to this dire situation,” Pooran said in a video he posted on Twitter.
“To all my fans and supporters, I realise I am in a safe and privileged position here in India at the IPL. But it is heartbreaking to be so close to the tragedy that is surrounding us. I would like to donate a portion of my IPL salary towards this (Covid) crisis in India,” he added.
