People are struggling for basic medical equipment like oxygen, hospital beds, and medicines. The fight against Covid-19 has also acted as a glue as it has united the citizens.
The cricket fraternity is also trying its best to help the country in whatever way it can. Many cricketers and IPL franchises including the likes of Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan, Pat Cummins, Rajasthan Royals, and Royal Challengers Bangalore have stepped forward in the hour of need to donate and make a difference.
