After Pat Cummins, another Australian has shown a big heart in the difficult times that India is facing now. Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has donated 1 Bitcoin to help India fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
The speedster, who was once renowned as the fastest in the world, wrote a message for his Indian fans. Through the message, he explained his decision to make the contribution and also called India, his second home. He is currently in India working as a presenter and broadcaster for Star Sports in their coverage of the Indian Premier League 2021.
In the message which he posted on Instagram, the 44-year-old wrote,
“India has always been like a second home for me. The love and affection that I have got from the people of this country both during my professional career and even after my retirement, holds a special place in my heart. It saddens me deeply to see people suffering due to the ongoing pandemic.”
“I feel privileged to be in a position of making a difference,” he said. “Now is the time to be united and ensure we do as much as we can to help the ones in need. I’d also want to thank all the frontline workers who have been working round the clock during these tough times,” Lee added in his message.
It is very healthy and delightful to see the cricket community from all over the world coming forward and helping in a difficult time like this. Lee has donated a generous sum of One Bitcoin which amounts to Rs 41.02 Lakhs in INR.
