Australia men’s cricket team donate the prize money to Sri Lankan kids

Australian cricketers have donated the prize money to help the crisis-hit nation's children from their recent Sri Lankan tour, officials said on Thursday.


Cricket Australia told the US $30,000 would be donated as a gesture of support after the men’s squad witnessed long fuel queues and political uncertainty during the mid-year tour.

Owing to inflation and extensive fuel shortages have made life miserable for millions of Sri Lankans.

The United Nations (UN) has declared a humanitarian crisis and widespread uproar led to the removal of the country’s president and prime minister.

The Australians who visited witnessed the crisis first-hand.

“It was very clear to us how much day-to-day life for Sri Lankans is being impacted,” captain Pat Cummins said.

The money will go to the UN children’s aid agency UNICEF.
