Pakistan to wear ‘special jersey’ in first England T20 to highlight flood devastation

The national cricket team will sport a special jersey in the first T20 match against England today “to raise awareness about the devastation caused by the floods in the country”, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Record monsoon rains in south and southwest Pakistan and glacial melt in northern areas have triggered the flooding that has affected nearly 33 million people, killed more than 1,540 people, sweeping away homes, crops, bridges, roads and livestock and causing an estimated $30 billion of damage.
