ISLAMABAD: England Test team captain Ben Stokes made a big announcement to help flood victims in Pakistan.

England captain Ben Stokes has announced a Test match donation to help flood victims.

Ben Stokes said that it was very sad to see the floods that devastated Pakistan earlier this year and that the floods had a significant impact on the country and the people.

The English captain said that the game has given me a lot in my life and I feel it is only right to give something back beyond cricket. I will donate my match fee from this Test series to Pakistan flood victims.

He further said that it is hoped that this donation will help in the reconstruction of Pakistan’s worst flood-affected areas.

Stokes said that he is very excited to be a part of the Test squad in Pakistan after 17 years. It feels great to be in Pakistan for the first time in a historic series, he added.
