Top 27 cricketers of Bangladesh have expended their hand to help fight against deadly coronavirus. Under the initiative by Tamim Iqbal, cricketers opted to donate 50 percent of their salary for one month to the government.


All of 17 players who are in the central contact will donate 50 percent of their salary, and other 10 players, who were part of the national team during the last three years, will also join them, reports UNB.

As per BCB's contract policy, when a cricketer represents Bangladesh from outside the central contract, he gets a salary of his grade as long as he plays for the Tigers. 

It means Tamim will donate Tk 325,000 as a contracted member of the national team while Nasum Ahmed will donate 50,000 as he was part of Bangladesh team during the T20I series against Zimbabwe.
