Cricket and philanthrophy
But the optimist in me consoled me telling this – not only players donate, if they play lot of audience also donate. Also the amount collected from advt/sponsorships etc is enormous in any scale compared to individual donations by players. I said Ok.
Lot of publicity happened for the matches with reports and summary covering half a page of newspaper.One match played. Lot – *LOT* of money collected. Tsunami wave died down. Other match cancelled. Rs 1 crore donated. News item appeared in a corner.
