Mumbai, May 19, 2021: Indian cricket team captain, Virat Kohli has once again lent a helping hand amid the covid-19 crisis. After donating Rs. 2 crores along with his actress wife Anushka Sharma in a fundraiser recently, Virat has now donated Rs 6.77 lakh for the Covid treatment of the mother of former Indian women cricketer K.S. Sravanthi Naidu.
Sravanthi, whose mother is suffering from severe covid-19 symptoms, had appealed to BCCI and Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) and many other associations for help. Kohli's gesture was in response to a tweet tagged to him by N. Vidya Yadav, former BCCI South Zone convenor (women's cricket).
"Honestly, I was amazed at his spontaneous gesture. Such a great gesture from such a great cricketer. I am also grateful to the Indian fielding coach R. Sridhar who also took up the issue with Kohli", Vidya told Sportstar.
The ex-women cricketer had already spent Rs 16 lakh for the treatment of her parents who are under treatment of covid-19. Apart from Virat Kohli, The HCA Apex Council has already sanctioned Rs 3 Lakhs for the same cause and would be releasing another Rs 2 Lakhs soon.
