David Warner, the Australian Cricket player, takes to Twitter to show an important news. He retweets how Sunrisers Hyderabad’s owner groups Sun TV Group is donating an amount of INR 10 crores to the COVID-19 relief fund.
Sunrisers Hyderabad is not the first IPL team that is responding to the relief fund. David Warner has been a part of Sunrisers Hyderabad for a while now. In fact, Warner was supposed to be the captain for Sunrisers Hyderabad for Indian Premier League 2020.
Even though David Warner retweets the original tweet with his token of appreciation, it is not clear to which fund the donation has been made to.

However, to make things clearer, it is not the team which is making the donation but the owner of the franchise. There are other franchises of IPL 2020 whose owners have taken to contribute for the battle against Coronavirus.
For example, Delhi Capitals owner, JSW Group, have taken the pledge to donate INR 100 crores to the PM Cares Fund.
Chairman of the @TheJSWGroup and chairperson of @JSWFoundation Papa @sajjanjindal and Ma @SangitaSJindal have decided to increase the @TheJSWGroup contribution to @narendramodi ji’s PM – CARES to Rs 100 crores – more to come.Proud to be a JSWite, proud to be Indian – JAI HIND pic.twitter.com/sqW5ceWXsi

On the other hand, the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, Shahrukh Khan has made his share of donation as well. SRK, Gauri Khan, Juhi Chawla, and Jay Mehta will be donating to the PM Cares Fund.
Players around the globe are making donations to fight the COVID-19 battle
During such difficult times, players are coming together to do their bit to help their nations fight against Coronavirus.
Jos Buttler put his 2019 World Cup finals jersey up for auction and the proceeds went to Royal Brompton Hospital.
On the other hand, Rohit Sharma has made considerable donations to help India fight the battle of Coronavirus.
Now, all the citizens of every nation need to stay indoors so that the virus does not spread any further. To ensure this, almost every nation is under a lockdown currently. Expectations are that the nations will start lifting the lockdown once reports state the spread of the virus is reducing.
