The first T20I match between England and Pakistan at National Stadium Karachi brought in Rs. 13 million gate money for the Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund in gate receipts.
PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja, who asserted that cricket has always united the nation, verified this development.
“Since we have announced earlier that all the revenue generated from the first T20I against England will go to the PM Flood Relief Funds, we are delighted to announce that Rs. 13 million have been generated. The gate money will be donated to the PM Relief Fund,” said Ramiz Raja.
“A packed National Stadium watched the first T20. Cricket has once again demonstrated that it unites our passionate nation, and thanks all the spectators who turned up to the match and contributed towards this noble cause,” he further added.
In the past, Babar Azam promised to give the match gate money from one Asia Cup game to the flood relief fund. Ramiz Raja asserted that PCB supports all the flood-affected people and families.
“The PCB stands firmly behind all those adversely affected by the calamity and salutes all those involved in the relief operations,” Ramiz Raja added.
