“Like most cricketers, India has been a special place to me. It’s a beautiful country, the people are welcoming and playing cricket in India is like no other experience in the world. It is never lost on me how privileged I am to be able to play cricket for a living and to travel to such countries like India, no more so than in the past 16 months,” Behrendorff wrote in a press release.
“It’s really horrific and distressing seeing what is happening at the moment here and knowing there isn’t much I can do. My thoughts are never far from those here in India who are being affected by the virus. I can’t imagine what you are going through,” he added.
“I wanted to do something to help and am making a donation to the UNICEF project for the India Covid-19 crisis. I encourage anyone who has also experienced the generous hospitality of India to do the same,” he wrote.
“I know it’s only a small amount, it could never match the love and friendship India has shown myself and my family over the years but I hope it can make the slightest difference,” Behrendorff concluded.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the IPL governing council suspended this 12 months’s match on May four as a result of rising circumstances amongst gamers in addition to the assist employees in a number of groups.
