Jos Buttler wants to have the donations for COVID-19 shared to help grassroots cricket industry.
England cricket players announced a total donation of £500,000 to the ECB and other selected good causes. This is directed to help those who are most affected in the challenging situation of COVID-19. While the details of the donations are yet to be decided by the players, Buttler’s preference was made clear.
‘I think the players would love that money to go towards grassroots community stuff. There are so many different areas that are going to be affected: grassroots, youth coaching and disability sports’, Buttler said.
He also added that they are all aware as players that without grassroots cricket, they will all be nothing as those are the ones who they are most trying to inspire. Butler also stated that those people are the main target of The Hundred as their goal remains to be ‘to inspire a new generation and bring new people into the game’.
With that, Buttler mentioned that the case of grassroots cricket will be his personal choice as his beneficiary for his donations.
The English player also shared how he is currently organizing an auction for the shirt that he had worn in the World Cup. The proceeds of the shirt will be to help some hospitals to purchase more machines to provide life support for their patients.
