Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has proposed an ODI series between India and Pakistan to raise funds for people affected by COVID-19 outbreak. The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact in both the countries as close to 10,000 people have been tested positive with the death toll rising over 200. The two arch-rivals have not played a full-fledged bilateral series since 2007 and after Akhtar's proposal, the internet has come with some funny memes to express their views. Shoaib Akhtar Proposes India vs Pakistan ODI Series to Raise Funds for Fight Against COVID-19 Pandemic.

Shoaib Akhtar also proposed that the match could be a closed-door affair and can be only telecasted on the television. ‘It can be a TV only affair.

Both the countries are currently in lockdown in order to prevent the rapid spread of COVID-19 and curfew could be increased if the virus is not brought under control.
