While his brother Hardik was thrashed by one and all for his misogynistic comments, Krunal Pandya only found praise from the Twitterati for his recent deeds. The southpaw came forward to provide financial aid to the former Indian cricketer Jacob Martin. The 46-year-old recently got severely injured in a road accident and is on life support at the moment.

After injuring his lungs and liver, Martin’s treatment hit a roadblock as his family fell short of funds. His wife Khyati sought help from the BCCI and the cricketing community and got a tremendous response for the same. Various cricketers, current and former, offered aid to support the treatment the first among them were the Pathan brothers Irfan and Yusuf.

A blank cheque – The contribution for Krunal Pandya

The all-rounder offered to give a blank cheque for the treatment and asked the family to fill up whatever amount is required but with a condition. Reportedly, he asked them not to fill the money column with anything under INR 1 Lakh.

This gesture from Krunal was a heart-warming one. Especially given that Martin has been battling hard with his life since 27 December 2018, the extra funds will possibly help in better treatment. As per the reports, the former batsmen slipped off a speed breaker while riding his two-wheeler when he went out to get his family some ice cream. Martin played a total of 10 ODIs for India between 1999 and 2001. He scored 158 runs at an average of nearly 23.

Twitterati was pleased with the contribution from Krunal Pandya. This heartfelt gesture saw the fans singing praise for him. They commended Krunal as a great person with a beautiful heart.
