Default Tsunami disaster relief- Bangladesh board pledges gate-money

Cricinfo staff

December 31, 2004

The Bangladesh Cricket Board announced on Thursday that gate-money from the forthcoming series against Zimbabwe, estimated to be $10,000, will go relief efforts to the tsunami victims in Sri Lanka. The move follows similar pledges of aid from Australia, England and South Africa.

The Sri Lankan government has said that more than 27,000 have died in Sri Lanka because of the tsunamis and more than 4900 missing. The tsunami, which hit coastal areas around Asia on Sunday, has killed more than 125,000 people in 13 countries, and has made more than one million people homeless.

Zimbabwe arrived in Bangladesh on Thursday to play two Tests and five one-day internationals. The first Test, at Chittagong, starts next Thursday, January 6.

If the fundraising game in Australia goes ahead, Ash should let the ACB know he's available for selection in the Rest of the World side.

Right now, he's got the form to be there on talent.
