England’s limited overs captain Eoin Morgan hailed his teammate Jos Buttler for his kind gesture of auctioning his shirt of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final. Buttler, on Twitter, revealed that he is auctioning his world-cup winning shirt which has the signatures of all the English cricketers with the aim to raise money for charity purposes.
Where a few International cricketers criticized this act by Buttler, Morgan applauded him and said that using the memorabilia for a noble cause overshadows it being in someone's drawer as a bit of a trophy.
"It's an incredibly kind gesture. I'm not one for holding on to memorabilia. We've seen people donate during the Australian bush fires; we saw Shane Warne auction his Baggy Green cap for a million dollars or something absolutely ridiculous. The impact that can have on many lives as opposed to sitting in someone's drawer as a bit of a trophy personally it's something I don't understand,”, Morgan quoted.
Morgan also feels that such things have no relevance when the world is going through crisis like these. Buttler has shared the link of the auction on his social media account and this auction is expected to raise a lot of money.
