As per reports, Indian batsman KL Rahul has donated a huge sum of money to help former India cricketer Jacob Martin, who has been in the hospital since December 28 following a serious accident. The accident injured Martin’s lungs and liver. Martin’s family has received help from the cricketing community with present and past Indian cricketers coming to his rescue after his family was confronted with a shortage of funds.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror on Thursday, Martin’s family confirmed that they got a large amount of money from discarded Indian batsman Rahul. The Indian opener has requested them not to reveal the amount so they didn’t disclose the sum received by them.
Jacob Martin was quoted as saying by Mumbai Mirror, “A big thanks to Rahul and everyone who has helped.”
“They asked about our immediate requirement and the money was transferred into our account the same day,” Jacob’s wife Khyati said.
“The body is reacting very well to treatment and I am now in a stable condition. I am hoping to be home in a couple of days and I want return to the ground. I can’t wait for it, I just want to get back to cricket,” Martin said.
