IPL 2019: MS Dhoni presents Rs 2 crore cheque to CRPF, military band performs at Chepauk

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) donated Rs 20 crore and Rs 2 crore respectively to the Indian armed forces ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 opening match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Saturday.


CSK skipper MS Dhoni, along with team director R Srinivasan, presented the cheque to the representatives of the CRPF during a felicitation ceremony organised by the BCCI for the armed forces in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir that left 40 personnel from the CRPF dead on February 14.





CSK had announced the proceeds from the ticket sales (Rs 2 crore) for the opening match between the home side and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) would be donated to the CRPF.
