Virat Kohli donates for treatment of former cricketer’s mother

Published Date:

Virat Kohli, the captain of Team India, has donated INR 6.77 lakh to S.K. Suman, the mother of former cricketer K.S. Sravanthi Naidu.

Sravanthi’s mother has been batting COVID-19 in hospital and has requested assistance from the BCCI and the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA).

Former BCCI South Zone convenor for women’s cricket N. Vidya Yadav, has tagged Virat Kohli in a request for assistance for Sravanthi.

Sravanthi has played for India in one Test, four ODIs, and six T20Is.

Sravanthi, a former left-arm orthodox spinner, last represented India in 2014.

She has already spent Rs 16 lakh on her parents’ COVID-19 treatment after both of them tested positive.

“Honestly, I was amazed at his spontaneous gesture. Such a great gesture from such a great cricketer,” Vidya said.

“I am also grateful to the Indian fielding coach R. Sridhar who also took up the issue with Kohli.”

Vidya has been helpful in collecting and arranging money for Sravanthi and her family, as well as coordinating with Shivlal.

The summit is set to begin on June 18.
