Ben Stokes, the captain of England, stated on Monday that he would donate his match fees from the three-match Test series against Pakistan to the nation’s flood relief effort.
A Test series between the English team and the Green Shirts is presently taking place in Pakistan and is set to begin on December 1.
The Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium will serve as the site of the opening Test. Later, Multan will hold the second Test, and Karachi will host the final Test.
Taking to Twitter, Stokes said that he felt great to be in Pakistan for the first time for this “historic series”.
“I’m donating my match fees from this Test series to the Pakistan Flood appeal,” said the skipper.
Stokes, while expressing his sadness over the loss faced by the people, said: “The floods that devastated Pakistan earlier this year was very sad to see and had a significant impact on the country and the people.”
The England captain hoped that the donation would go toward the rebuilding of areas of Pakistan most affected by the flooding.
