As India has been fighting against the second wave of novel coronavirus, many cricketers have come forward to lend a helping hand in the difficult times of pandemic.
Recently, Australia pacer Jason Behrendorff also joined hands in India’s battle against the deadly virus. The 31-year-old decided to make a donation to UNICEF Australia’s India COVID-19 Crisis Appeal.
Taking to his official Instagram handle, Behrendorff stated that he wanted to help the country amid the ongoing pandemic just like other players. The left-arm pacer also asserted that his donation might not be enough but he hopes that it would help someone in need.
“It’s really horrific and distressing seeing what is happening at the moment here and knowing there isn’t much I can do. My thoughts are never far from those here in India who are being affected by the virus. I can’t even imagine what you are going through,” Behrendorff wrote in a caption.
“I wanted to do something to help and am making a donation to the UNICEF Project for the India COVID-19 Crisis. I encourage anyone who has also experienced the generous hospitality of India to do the same,” he added.
Jason Behrendorff was roped in by the three-time champions Chennai Super Kings as the replacement for Josh Hazlewood before the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. However, he was yet to feature in the tournament.
