PCB donates 13M gate money to Flood Victims

The Pakistan Cricket Board has announced that the wicket money from the first T20I between Pakistan and England will be donated to flood victims. The total money raised for the gate was Rs 13 crore which was donated to the cause.

This monsoon brought devastating floods to Pakistan that killed more than 1,500 people and displaced millions. Seeing the devastation caused by the disaster, PCB decided to help the needy. While the England cricket team is in Pakistan for the first time in 17 years, the PCB has announced that the gate money for the first T20I match will be donated to flood victims.

The first encounter between England and Pakistan was played at a National Stadium in Karachi on Tuesday. When all the tickets for the series opener were sold out, the PCB earned Rs. 13 million, which was donated to the Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund. PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja and CEO Faisal Husnain praised the fans for putting up an excellent show to contribute to the cause.

Earlier, Babar Azam had said that the match fees for one match of the Asia Cup would be donated to the flood relief fund.
