The Board of Control for Cricket in India has agreed to give Rs10million (£120,000) for relief efforts for the tsunami victims in the south of the country, where more than 13,000 are estimated to have died. The move follows similar pledges of aid from Australia, England, South Africa and Bangladesh.

India's one-day players, who are among the highest-paid cricketers in the world, have also indicated that they will each donate match-fees of one match.

The tsunami, which hit costal areas around Asia on Sunday, has killed more than 125,000 people in 13 countries, and has made more than one million people homeless.
