India is fighting against the demonic second wave of the COVID-19 virus, which has left the country devastated. Every day, the country is registering cases of more than 3.5 lakhs. Sometimes the count has gone past the 4-lakh mark. The death toll has surged significantly over the past few weeks.
With the situation going shady in India, many cricketers across the globe have extended financial aid to help out the Indians. Some players have forwarded their prayers for the people to fight against the deadly virus.
My heartfelt duas for India – Mohammad Amir
Recently, Pakistani legend Mohammad Amir has shown concern for India. Sharing a video on Twitter, Amir has stated that India’s neighbour is with them in the toughest time. Many Pakistani cricketers have come forward as India is in a tug-of-war situation with the virus. Amir hung his boots in December 2020 after having some issues with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Albeit the cricketer is open for franchise-based leagues.
“My heartfelt duas with u India. Remember we are all with you through our prayers in these difficult times, may Allah bless us all with his rehmat. #getwellsoonindia,” tweeted Mohammad Amir.

A few days back, Pakistan Cricket Team skipper Babar Azzam has also offered his prayers and urged everyone to follow rules and regulations strictly.
“Prayers with the people of India in these catastrophic times. It’s time to show solidarity and pray together. I also request all the people out there to strictly follow SOPs, as it’s for our safety only. Together we can do it,” tweeted Azam a few days back.
The COVID-19 situation in India went off the cliff after mid-March. The cases started escalating. Around April, the number of cases was as high as three lakhs. The acute shortage of beds, oxygen have bruised the country. After the unfavourable situation took a toll on the bio-bubble, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had to postpone the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 for an indefinite time.
