The second wave of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc in India. The country is daily reporting over two lakh of positive coronavirus cases. Thousands of people have lost their lives to the deadly virus. As India is fighting a tough battle with Covid-19, the cricket fraternity has shown solidarity with the people of India.
The cricket boards including BCCI, CA, IPL franchises namely RCB, RR, CSK, SRH, and many cricket players whether Indian or overseas have stepped forward to do their bit and help India fight coronavirus. The new addition to this list is of IPL franchise Punjab Kings.
Punjab Kings have extended their hand to help India fight the battle against Covid-19 by collaborating with Round Table India (RTI). The two organizations will distribute oxygen concentrators to various hospitals and other places. While Punjab will be financing the oxygen concentrators, RTI will be responsible for the proper distribution of the oxygen supply.
Punjab Kings released an official statement to announce the details of their noble cause. The franchise co-owner Ness Wadia revealed that the relief program is called ‘Project Saah’. He further added that the only way India can fight the virus and emerge stronger is by their unity.
“The current situation that the world is facing is nothing short of a catastrophe. The only way I think we can overcome this pandemic is by joining hands, stepping up to the challenge, and reaching out to as many of those who are left distressed, distraught, and helpless. Punjab Kings joining forces with Round Table India is yet another small step towards battling this unprecedented crisis,” Ness Wadia said in an official release.
