Indian Cricketers Association (ICA), cricket’s players body in India, an organisation of around 1750 members, has come in support of the former Ranji Trophy players facing financial challenges due to ongoing pandemic.

The ICA Chief Ashok Malhotra has requested the legendary cricketers to contribute at least 1000 INR to support the former Ranji Trophy players till lockdown ends.

“These players have finished their careers but are not getting a pension from anywhere. They were either working in an academy or running an academy. Since they have no other source of income, we aim to provide them ₹ 25,000 per month till the time the lockdown is in force. Some of them need medical assistance as well,” said Malhotra.

“Aman Kumar and Ashwini Kumar from Haryana were the first ones to respond. Three USA-based cricketers — R.S. Ghai, Ashöok Patel and Balkar Singh — have also contributed. I appeal to the legends and star cricketers to contribute to the cause.”
