England team to donate money for Mumbai terror victims

The England players who were here for the two Test series have decided to donate half their match fee towards victims of last month's terrorist attack in Mumbai.

"We extend our sincere sympathies to the families who lost loved ones in the Mumbai tragedy. The England team have agreed to pay half of their first Test match fees to families of those victims of Mumbai attacks," opener Alistair Cook read out a statement on behalf of the team.

England had cut short their tour after the Mumbai attacks. They returned for the two Tests after being extended extraordinary security arrangements to ensure the safety of the players.

The team said that they have come back to play cricket "in support of the Indian people following the tragic event in Mumbai."
