“I am particularly eager to work with organisations providing medical aid and make stronger to rural India and non-metro cities, which don’t have the capacity of medical infrastructure than that of the major cities,” he added.
Pant used to be leading the Delhi Capitals in the now-postponed Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
Pant’s franchise also reported one positive Covid case as their leg-spinner Amit Mishra contracted the virus on May 4.
In his note, the Delhi Capitals skipper urged his fans to donate in whichever way imaginable in order that the help can reach the remote areas of the country.
“I urge everyone to contribute in their own way in order that we will be able to help reach the remotest parts of the country and spread awareness approximately COVID relief and vaccination programs being run by the central and state governments,” Pant wrote.
The Delhi Capitals were leading the IPL 2021 points table before a large number of Covid cases forced the BCCI and IPL Governing Council to unanimously postpone the T20 tournament indefinitely.
