On Saturday, July 11th, when four Indian sport stars, namely, Kapil Dev, Murali Kartik, Shubhankar Sharma and Gaganjee Bhular, will come together to play a charity event at the historical Delhi Golf Course, to help raise money for the COVID-19 relief efforts.

When asked, how competitive the event will get, given all four are seasoned sports persons, Bhullar added, “Here, it is not about winning or losing. The main objective is raising money for the charity and putting up a good show. Ofcourse, we will all do our best but I don’t suppose competition will be on anyone’s mind that day.”
