The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have come up with a helping hand in India's battle with ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The cricket governing body of the country announced on Monday that they will donate 10-Litre 2000 Oxygen concentrators as India is trying to overcome from the horrific second wave of Coronavirus.

With the country struggling with lack of resources and medical equipment, this move by BCCI will certainly boost India's efforts in the fight to save lives. The board will distribute the concentrators across the country in the next few months in a bid to ensure that all the needy patients could get the necessary medical care and treatment in these unprecedented times.
