The deadly Coronavirus pandemic has brought the entire world to a standstill. As per media reports, more than 8 lakh cases have been identified so far across the world with almost 39,000 of them losing their lives.


Be it Europe or Asia, all the continents have been severely hit by the COVID-19 outbreak. Even Afghanistan has been affected by 120 positive cases. Amongst them, four people have lost their lives, and only a couple have been recovered.

Like every other nation, Afghanistan is also under lockdown at the moment. Due to it, poor people and daily wage workers are suffering. To help the needy, Afghanistan cricketer, Aftab Alam has come forward. The speedster has donated 2 lakh Afghan Afghani (INR 198,466) and has also helped them with the essential grocery.


Aftab last played for Afghanistan in the 2019 World Cup held in England and Wales. He was replaced midway through the tournament under unusual circumstances. The 27-year-old picked four wickets in the showpiece event with 3/45 against New Zealand being his best.

In July, Aftab was suspended from domestic and international cricket by the ACB Discipline Committee after he was found guilty of violating the disciplinary code of conduct during the 2019 World Cup.

Overall, Aftab has played 27 ODIs in which the Nangarhar-born has picked 41 wickets. The pacer also has 11 scalps to his name in the 12 T20 Internationals for his nation.
