Pat Cummins, the Kolkata Knight Riders point guard, conquered the cricket world not with his pitch but his exploits off the pitch. Cummins, who recently donated $ 50,000 (37 INR Lakh approximately) into the PM CARES fund to provide oxygen supplies in India for those in need due to the recent COVID-19 crisis in the country , will be present in an exclusive conversation with WION editor-in-chief Palki Sharma Upadhyay on Wednesday evening at 9 p.m. for her show GRAVITAS.
Cummins, who is one of several Australian cricketers who have chosen to stick with their respective franchises amid the rapid surge in COVID cases in India, has been one of the shining stars of the Kolkata Knight Riders in the competition with bat and ball. .
He played with the bat in his team’s game against the Chennai Super Kings, scoring 66 * with just 34 balls and was the chief wrecker with the ball, especially on the power play.
In the interview, Stimulator will talk about what inspired him to donate, as Stimulator also urged his Australian colleagues to do the same, being in a position where they can help those in need. He will also explain why he chose the PM CARES fund to donate the amount he made. After Cummins, former Australian pacemaker Brett Lee also followed suit by donating 1 BitCoin (BTC) (INR 41 Lakh approx) in the Cryptorelief to ensure the supply of oxygen to hospitals across the country.
