It would not be wrong to say that the world is currently going through an unprecedented level of danger as almost all kinds of have activities have been suspended. COVID-19 has now hit more than 200 countries. As a result, more than 3.15 million people have caught the virus while approximately 220,000 deaths have been recorded.

The situation can exacerbate further as people are deprived of the basic necessities of lives. Amid all the chaos, many cricketers are coming up with brilliant initiatives to help their countries. Recently, it was the turn of Pakistan’s Test skipper Azhar Ali to show his humanitarian side to everyone.

The dependable batsman has put his bat on auction with which he scored a triple-century in the Test cricket. Not only that, the jersey he donned in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 tournament, signed by all the players, has also been placed in the auction.

A veteran of 78 Tests and 53 ODIs, the right-hander aims to generate considerable funds via auction to help the victims. Moreover, he urged others to come forward and assist the distressed people in these troubling times.
