Aleem Dar, international umpire and member of the ICC Elite Panel, has donated $10,000 to the dams fund in his home country, Pakistan.
Pakistan Prime Minister and former national cricket team captain, Imran Khan, has called for Pakistanis at home and abroad to donate to the fund in a bid to help the country's water shortage crisis.
The fund is in place to build new water reservoirs within the next seven years to prevent a serious drought.
Dar revealed the confirmation of his donation in a video posted online. "I have decided to contribute $10,000 for the dams fund initiative," he said.
"I appreciate the efforts put in by Chief Justice of Pakistan (Mian Saqib Nisar) and government of Pakistan to construct dams in Pakistan."
He also made a plea for other Pakistanis to contribute. "This initiative is going to serve as a great benefit for us and our coming generations in the future,” he said.
“I would request people in Pakistan and those living overseas to come forward and contribute funds generously for this cause."
