First T20I gate receipts from Pakistan vs. England will be donated to the PM’s Flood Relief Fund.

The Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund 2022 will receive all gate receipts from the first Twenty20 International against England, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Sunday.

The PCB has urged cricket supporters and fans to buy tickets in large quantities once they go on sale online the following week in order to show solidarity with all those affected by the disaster, aid in the rehabilitation of the population, and aid the state and local governments in their relief and rescue efforts.

You should be aware that the game will take place on September 20 at 7:30 p.m. at Karachi’s National Stadium (local time).

Ramiz Raja, the chairman of the PCB, gave a speech at the event and said: “We at the PCB express our grief and sorrow for all those affected by the extreme monsoon rainfall and floods, which have caused havoc and devastation beyond imagination, killing over 1,000 people and displacing close to a million people.

We wholeheartedly support the victims and everyone working in the flood relief and rescue operations as cricket unifies our beautiful nation.

The PCB president continued by saying that as a “responsible and compassionate” organisation, the PCB has consistently stood with its supporters and the general public during difficult, trying, and trying times.

He added that the PCB had agreed to support the Prime Minister’s Flood Relief by donating gate receipts from the first T20I match against England next month.

“I encourage all spectators to participate in this initiative by purchasing tickets for the first T20I and showing up in large numbers to participate in this initiative so that we as a cricketing family can donate a significant amount to the fund and show solidarity with those affected by the catastrophe,” said Raja.

We have already dispatched trucks filled with food, medication, and other supplies to the impacted areas, and we’ll keep supporting our country and the rescue crews wherever we can. We continue to pray and think about the people of Pakistan.

On their first trip to Pakistan in 17 years, England will play seven T20 internationals. On September 20, 22, 23, and 25, matches will be held in Karachi; on September 28 and 30, and on October 2, matches will be held in Lahore.

Three Test matches between England and Pakistan will take place in Rawalpindi (December 1-5), Multan (December 9-13), and Karachi beginning in late November (December 17-21).
