England wicketkeeper batsman Jose Butler has raised more than 65,000 pounds (about Rs 60 lakh) from the auction of shirts worn in the World Cup final last year to help fight against the Corona virus. Butler wore this shirt during the final played against New Zealand at Lord’s last year.
He raised the money for Royal Brampton and Hurtfield Hospital in London. Butler, who was run out on the last ball of the match and scored a half-century in the earlier match, put the shirt up for auction on eBay a week ago.
When the auction closed on Tuesday, there were 82 bids for it, in which the winner would have to pay £ 65,100.
