Kapil Dev Rejects Akhtar’s Ind-Pak Series Proposal, Said – India Doesn’t Need Money
New Delhi : The great cricketer Kapil Dev on Thursday rejected the suggestion of a three-match ODI series between India and Pakistan in Shoaib Akhtar’s view of raising funds for the Covid-19 epidemic, saying that India does not need the money and for the cricket match, there is no need to risk life.
Akhtar, while talking to PTI on Wednesday, had proposed a series in the closed stadium and Kapil said it was not possible. Kapil told PTI, “He has his own opinion but we don’t need to raise funds this way. We have a lot of money. One thing is important for us at the moment, how our administration deals with this crisis together. I see a lot of accusations of politicians on TV and it should be stopped.”
He said, “Anyway, the BCCI has donated a huge amount (51 crore rupees) for this epidemic and if it is needed, it can donate even more than that, it does not need to raise money this way.”
