    It would be nice if they can do something for their own country as well. Like giving better facilities for the cancer patients.

    To be better informed is very important. Both these cricketers are doing immense humanitarian work locally, in Sri Lanka, through a well known Foundation. You can simply google and get this information.

    Magnanimous gesture from two outstanding sportsmen of our country although our countrymen are are not allowed to play in Chennai. While Jayalalitha only pasted her picture every lunch pack came in for distribution our stars gave their heat out for the poor flood victims. Well done gentlemen. This is the difference between the sportsmen and politicians.

    Hope the money will be used for the poor victims - Jayalalitha will pocket some for sure.

    Bala Wednesday, 09 December 2015 11:50 AM

    Sri Lanka deserves more of your generosity - flood victims and health problems also exist here. India has enough money compared to us.

    johan Wednesday, 09 December 2015 09:40 AM
