Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has come up to do his bit in the fight against COVID-19 after he donated an undisclosed amount to financially help 4,000 underprivileged people, including children from Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) schools.

The world has been facing a massive problem after the coronavirus outbreak and everything has been shut amid the outburst.

This is not the first time that the former Indian captain has come up with the help. Earlier, the right-handed batsman donated a sum of Rs 50 lakh.

Sachin Tendulkar decided to contribute Rs 25 lakh each to Prime Minister’s Relief Fund and Chief Minister’s Relief Fund in his bid to join the fight against COVID-19. It was his decision that he wanted to contribute to both funds,” a source privy to the development, told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

All the cricketing and psorting events have been either postponed or canceled due to the pandemic. The Indian Premier League (IPL) which was earlier scheduled to begin in the March-end was initially postponed till April and then further for an indefinite time.

Infact, the BCCI President Sourav Ganguly made it clear that the cricketing action is totally shut for sometime.

India last played against New Zealand in an away fixture. They won the T20I series but then lost ODIs and Tests to lose their first position in the longer format in the ICC Test Rankings. They are now ranked three but are still at the helm in the World Test Championship.
