Irfan Pathan’s cricket academy to provide free meals to Coronavirus affected people in South Delhi
Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan on Wednesday took Twitter to announce that his and elder brother Yusuf Pathan’s cricket academy will be providing provide free meals to the coronavirus-affected people in South Delhi. Irfan Pathan, in his tweet, said that with the country battling the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, it is important for everyone to come forward and help those in need.
“While the nation is in the midst of the second wave of Covid-19, it becomes our responsibility to come together and assist the people in need. Taking inspiration from the same, Cricket Academy of Pathans (CAP) is going to provide free meals to Covid-19 affected people in South Delhi,” Irfan tweeted. Irfan Pathan, who announced his retirement from international cricket in January, last year, was part of IPL's commentators’ panel. The BCCI, after an emergency meeting on Tuesday, unanimously decided to suspend the 14th edition of the cash-rich League indefinitely after several players from different IPL teams, including Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders tested positive for Covid-19. In the last 24 hours, 3,780 people died of Covid1-9 in India which is the highest in a day. The total number of fatalities has reached 2,26,188. India's Covid caseload hit 2.06 crore with over 3.82 lakh new cases as the crisis continues to crush the healthcare system.
