The duo had pledged to donate 200 oxygen concentrators to the rural parts of India earlier this month. Hardik had made the announcement about the same ahead of MI's high voltage match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), which Mumbai won by four wickets.
"Krunal, myself and my mother - basically our entire family, we were finding ways at trying to help out. We decided to donate 200 oxygen concentrators to the rural parts of India where I feel the medical infrastructure needs more support," Hardik had said.
On Monday, former India cricketer Irfan Pathan lent a helping hand as well, sharing a video of a "slot" of oxygen concentrators, which he had arranged, being readied to be dispatched.
Several other cricketers including the likes of Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, Shikhar Dhawan and Jaydev Undakat have also stepped in to help India as the second wave of coronavirus wreck-havoc on the nation.
Ace Australian seamer Pat Cummins and former cricketer Brett Lee and West Indies' Nicholas Pooran have also done their bid in India's fight.
Both Krunal and Hardik were part of Mumbai's contingent during the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) before it was called off by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on May 4.
BCCI's announcement came after an emergency meeting with the IPL Governing Council after several players and support staff tested positive.
Krunal scored 100 runs and picked three wickets in IPL 2021 while Hardik amassed 52 runs in seven games.
