KARACHI: At the first T20 International against England at Karachi's National Stadium, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) raised Rs13 million for the Prime Minister's Flood Relief Fund.

"Since we have announced earlier that all the revenue generated from the first T20I against England will go to the PM Flood Relief Funds, we are delighted to announce that Rs13 million have been generated. The money will be donated to the PM Relief Fund," PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja said in a statement.

"A packed National Stadium watched the first T20. Cricket has once again demonstrated that it unites our passionate nation, and thanks all the spectators who turned up to the match and contributed towards this noble cause."

Three times as much rain fell in Pakistan as usual during a strong and historic monsoon. This resulted in record flooding when combined with glacier melt.

Pakistan, on Sunday, lost to England by six wickets in the opening T20I, thanks to Alex Hales and Harry Brook, who scored 53 and 42 runs, respectively.

"The PCB stands firmly behind all those adversely affected by the calamity and salutes all those involved in the relief operations," the former cricketer added.

Pakistan will take on England in the second T20I of the seven-match historic series here at the National Stadium Karachi on Thursday (today).
