Jos Buttler's bid to raise money for coronavirus has already gathered momentum with reports saying that the World Cup winner has already received a bid in excess of £60,000 for the jersey he wore at the tournament. Jos Buttler had put his shirt up for sale to raise funds to help those affected by the coronavirus crisis earlier this week. Among the bidders, British boxer Anthony Joshua has come forward to buy the jersey that the wicketkeeper was wearing when England won Cricket World Cup final against New Zealand.
The money collected from the highest bidder for Jos Buttler's World Cup jersey will be given to the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity, which last week launched an emergency appeal to provide life-saving equipment for people suffering from coronavirus. The Cricket World Cup jersey worn by Jos Buttler has been signed by his teammates.
In order to ensure that his message reaches more people in order to raise more funds for coronavirus victims, Jos Buttler, in a twitter post tagged Virat Kohli and other cricketers, asking them to retweet his video.
