Sarfaraz Ahmed, the former Pakistani captain of shorter formats, has denounced to donate the bat he used in ICC Champions Trophy 2017 (CT17) to help raise COVID-19 funds.
Many prominent names from the world of Pakistan cricket have come forward to help raise the funds of COVID-19. Shahid Khan Afridi running his foundation is the most dominated name among all which on a regular basis is helping Pakistanis who cannot afford basics in a lockdown.
Sarfaraz Ahmed has also joint the race along with other cricketers and relevant authorities and has decided to auction his bat of CT17.
“Sarfaraz Ahmed has given the bat he used during the 2017 Champions Trophy for auction. The money raised will go towards helping athletes and ground staff who are struggling financially since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic,” tweeted Saj Sadiq, Editor of PakPassion.

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken all across the globe and has caused almost 50,000 deaths globally. The human existence is in danger and is running out of basic needs for life. Those who can afford have come forward to join the forces for their respective countries and to help those in need.
Sarfaraz Ahmed’s bat would be worth enough many lacs so that he has auctioned his for COVID-19 funds. It is to be noted that Pakistan beat India brutally in ICC Champions Trophy 2017 (CT17) and lifted the trophy for the nation.
