Afghanistan cricketers Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi are extending a helping hand to the victims of the deadly 6.3-magnitude earthquake that struck their home country and killed thousands of people.

“I learned with great sadness about the tragic consequences of the earthquake that struck the western provinces (Herat, Farah, and Badghis) of Afghanistan. I am donating all of my #CWC23 match fees to help the affected people. Soon, we will be launching a fundraising campaign to call upon those who can support the people in need,” leg spinner Rashid, who also captains Afghanistan in T20 cricket, wrote on social media.
