After Australian cricketer and IPL player Pat Cummins recently announced that he has donated 50,000 dollars to the PM Cares Fund in order to help India combat the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, actor and filmmaker Rahul Bose lauded the sportsperson on social media.
Rahul Bose on Monday took to Twitter to share Pat’s post on donation and praised the cricketer in a tweet which read, “How to get to the top of the rankings without bowling a single ball. @patcummins30 Salute (sic).”
Earlier, while announcing that he has made a donation for purchasing oxygen supplies, Pat shared in a lengthy post, “India is a country I have come to love dearly over the years and the people here are some of the warmest and kindest I have ever met. To know so many are suffering so much at this time saddens me greatly.”
The Australian cricketer also addressed the controversy of conducting IPL matches at such a fragile time in the country and further wrote, “There has been quite a bit of discussion over here as to whether it is appropriate for the IPL to continue while Covid-19 infection rate remains so high. I am advised that the Indian government is of the view that playing the IPL while the population is in lockdown provides a few hours of joy and respite each day at an otherwise difficult time for the country.
