XtraTime Web Desk: Indian cricket team’s ace pacer Mohammed Shami stands beside the families of the soldiers who lost their lives in the Pulwama terror attack. Ahead of him Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir & Shikhar Dhawan too stood beside them after that horrific attack.
“When we play for our country they stand at the borders protecting it. We stand with the families of our jawans, we will always be there for them,” Shami told ANI on Monday.
Earlier, Shikhar told that he will be donating money to the families to the 40 CRPF paramilitary troopers who were killed in a terror attack and asked the others to do the same.
Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag also offered to bear the educational expenses of children of all the CRPF personnel killed in the dastardly terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama.
“Nothing we can do will be enough, but the least I can do is offer to take complete care of the education of the children of our brave CRPF jawans martyred in #Pulwama in my Sehwag International School @SehwagSchool , Jhajjar. Saubhagya hoga,” Sehwag wrote on his twitter handle.
Vidarbha captain Faiz Fazal also announced that the entire prize money that the team won after clinching the Irani Cup will be donated to the families of the CRPF personnel.
“We as a team have decided to donate the prize money to the family of the martyrs who lost their lives in Pulwama. This is a small gesture from our team and VCA,” Fazal said.
