New Delhi: Former India batsman Suresh Raina on Saturday donated Rs 52 lakh to the country's fight against Covid19 pandemic and urged others also to contribute in these times of health crisis.

"It's time we all do our bit to help defeat COVID19. I'm pledging ?52 lakh for the fight against Corona (?31 lakh to the PM-CARES Fund & ?21 lakh to the UP CM's Disaster Relief Fund). Please do your bit too. Jai Hind," Raina tweeted.
