All proceeds from the match will go towards the Cerebral Society and we are inviting everyone to be part of the effort.

“We pitched the idea to the cricketers, many of them who are coming off the CPL season and we must extend our gratitude to every one of them who will be giving of their time to put on a show on Saturday and contribute to this worthy cause,” Ramrekha added,
