Players donate $160,000 to Bushfire Appeal

8 February, 2020

Moises Henriques and Glenn Maxwell have announced that through the ACA on behalf of all players, male and female, they will donate the value of tonight's BBL winner's cheque ($160,000) to the Bushfire Appeal.

Players have also contributed throughout the summer by donating per six or wicket they took, as well as donating in many other ways.

ACA CEO Alistair Nicholson said that it was fantastic that the cricket community has got around this worthy cause.

"It's the least we can do to support all those people out there affected by these fires over the summer.

"While these events have been a challenge for all involved, what is clear is that we have some tremendously kind and generous people in our playing group, and I have been proud of the way the players have used their profiles to raise money throughout the summer.
