the train accident incident that happened in Odisha which claimed the lives of roughly around 300 passengers, there have been multiple reports of India cricket captain Rohit Sharma having donated Rs 15 Cr to the families of people who lost their lives in the tragedy. But how much of it is true? Did Rohit, who is getting ready to lead the side in the WTC final actually donate the sum of money that is being claimed? Well, the truth is that there is nothing official about it so it cannot be confirmed.
On the eve of the WTC final, Rohit spoke to the media and conformed that the XI will be decided on the day of the match.
Rohit Sharma on possibility of playing two spinners: “Pitch and condition keep changing. Message for all the boys is that they should be ready. We will see tomorrow and will decide who will play.
Rohit, who played the the inaugural WTC final two years back, has been struggling with form lately in the IPL and is expected to make his bat do the talking in the WTC final which starts in just a couple of days. India have been plagued with injures before the WTC final 2023.
As the situation is gradually limping back to normalcy after one of the biggest ever train tragedies in the history of India at Bahanaga station in Balasore district which claimed the lives of 275 passengers, several reports published in some sections of media have stated that former Team India captain Virat Kohli is donating a whopping Rs 30 Cr for the victims.
The star batsman had come up with a tweet following the grave incident where he claimed that he was saddened by what has happened and was praying for the families of the victims.
Saddened to hear about the tragic train accident in Odisha. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families who lost their loved ones and wishing a speedy recovery to the injured,” Kohli’s tweet read.
However, as far as Kohli’s donation of Rs 30 crore to the accident victims is concerned, there is nothing official about it and these reports are purely based on rumours.
Kohli is currently in UK for the marquee World Test Championship Final 2023 against formidable Australia to be played at the Oval starting from June 7. Kohli is currently in red hot form and he is going to be the batting mainstay for Team India in the all-important match.
