England vs Pakistan: Ben Stokes Will Give Flood Victims in Pakistan Match Fees From Test Series

Pakistan vs. England: In front of the series opener on December 1, Stirs up on Monday reported that he would give his match charges from the whole series to the Pakistan flood request.


England is currently in Pakistan for a historic Test series led by Ben Stokes. The three-match series between England and Pakistan will be part of the World Test Championship for the first time in 17 years.

On Monday, Stokes made the announcement that he would donate the entire series’ match fees to the Pakistan flood appeal in advance of the series opening match on December 1.


Stokes posted the following on Twitter: My match fees from this Test series will be donated to the Pakistan Flood Appeal.


The England Test captain stated, throughout his entire statement, “It’s great to be in Pakistan for this historic series for the first time. It is very exciting to be back in this position after 17 years on a Test team. Being a part of the playing and support group is special because there is a sense of responsibility there.


He continued, “It was very sad to see the floods that devastated Pakistan earlier this year and has had a significant impact on the country and the people.”


Stokes added the following to his statement: “I feel it’s only right to give back something that goes far beyond cricket to the game that has given me so much in my life. My match fees from this Test series will be donated to the Pakistan flood appeal.”


He continued, “Hope this donation can go toward the rebuilding of Pakistani areas most affected by the flooding.”


For the first time since 2005, the England cricket team arrived early on Sunday to play three Tests in Pakistan. Two months ago, England hosted a successful Twenty20 series in Pakistan. However, the country has not hosted a Test match there in 17 years due to the uncertain security situation.


They were supposed to go to Pakistan last year, but they pulled out because of security alerts and New Zealand abandoning their tour minutes before the first one-day international.


The three-match series, which is part of the World Test Championship, starts on December 1 in Rawalpindi.

The second Test is in Multan from December 9-13, and the third is in Karachi from December 17-21.
