Bangalore: Ahead of their group B match against giant-killers Ireland on Sunday, the Indian cricket team did their bit of charity when the gears of captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir were auctioned here on Friday to raise funds for the disabled.

The auction was organised by a charitable institution Mathru Foundation and was attended by Dhoni and Gambhir, along with Munaf Patel, Piyush Chawla and pacer Praveen Kumar, who was ruled out of the World Cup squad in the last minute due to an injury.

Former India fast bowler Venkatesh Prasad and Ashwini Nachappa were also involved with the foundation.
