The COVID-19 pandemic has so far claimed over 250 lives while infecting more than 8000 people across the country.

"In these tough times we have to come together and help each other. In a humbling effort we have donated Rs 2.5 lakh to the police in Dehradun to feed the migrant labourers stuck at the borders," he said in a statement issued by the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB).

"We have also provided food and ration for 100 plus underprivileged families back home. It is not much when the demand is for much more, but we are happy to help," Abhimanyu added.
