The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has donated some 51 crores (£5.47million) to the Prime Minister's Relief Fund in the fight against Covid-19.
India is under a 21-day lockdown aimed at containing the spread of the virus across one of the world's most densely-populated countries of some 1.3 billion people.
A BCCI statement read: "The outbreak of the Coronavirus is first and foremost a public health emergency and the BCCI has a firm resolve that the nation gets all possible help to cope with the testing times."
Elsewhere, England Women cricket captain Heather Knight is one of the hundreds of thousands of people to have signed up for the NHS volunteer scheme.
"I have a lot of free time on my hands and I want to help as much as I can," Knight wrote in her BBC column.
"My brother and his partner are doctors, and I have a few friends who work in the NHS, so I know how hard they are working and how difficult it is for everyone.
"I'm going to get the car out as I've volunteered to transport medicine, and also speak to people who are self-isolating."
England's World Cup winning captain Eoin Morgan has also added his voice to the sport stars showing their appreciation for the NHS to reinforce the message of staying home to help save lives.
