Irfan Pathan, in his tweet, said that with country battling the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, it is important for everyone to come forward and help those in need.

“While the nation is in the midst of second wave of COVID-19, it becomes our responsibility to come together and assist the people in need. Taking inspiration from the same, Cricket Academy of Pathans (CAP) is going to provide free meals to COVID-19 affected people in South Delhi,” Irfan tweeted.

Irfan Pathan, who announced his retirement from international cricket in January last year, was part of IPL’s commentators’ panel. The BCCI, after an emergency meeting on Tuesday, unanimously decided to indefinitely suspend the 14th edition of the cash-rich league. The decision was taken after several players from different IPL teams, including Delhi Capitals, SunRisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders tested positive for COVID-19.
