India’s limited-overs captain Dhoni smashed the winning runs for his side Heroes XI in the inaugural T20 match fundraiser against Rest of the World XI.

This amount will be eventually handed over to the Indian Army in support of the wounded and severely injured soldiers in the line of duty. Following this inaugural fundraiser match at The Oval in London, the foundation has also partnered with The Help for Heroes foundation to replicate a series of similar charity matches in India over the coming years in order to raise more funds towards the support of the Indian Army.

On his return to India after the match, Dhoni said, “The match was an excellent platform to support such a worthy cause. I feel honored to have been a part of it and look forward to supporting <g data-gr-id="18">many</g> more like these in near future.
