RCB pays a tribute to Covid heroes

Yesterday there was a small but heroic surprise waiting for IPL fans. The mainstays of RCB team Virat Kohli and AB De villiers were seen wearing Jerseys with different names on them. ABD’s jersey has the name Paritosh in it while Kohli’s Jersey had  Simranjeet written on it. The theme behind this is “My Covid heroes”and the change of name on the Jersey is a tribute to those heroes who work tirelessly during this Pandemic. 


Paritosh Pant started the project feeding from far along with lawyer Pooja Reddy in Mumbai to feed the needy during this pandemic while Simranjeet Singh raised 98000 to help people during this pandemic. 


When asked about this Kohli said ” “In the past few months, whenever I heard the stories of the Covid Heroes it has given me literal goosebumps. These real challengers have made the country proud and inspired all of us to be more persistent and dedicated to our efforts to build a better tomorrow. I am truly proud to wear RCB’s “My Covid Heroes” jersey as a sign of solidarity and gratitude to everyone who is right now going the extra mile to support the community at large. They have batted day and night and fought on the field, and I am honoured to call them my heroes.”

This is indeed a nice gesture by RCB.
