Sri Lanka is going through its worst financial crisis since gaining its freedom, and food and fuel are in constant short supply everywhere. The island nation's electricity minister announced on Friday that the country's fuel supply will run out in five days, which caused gas station lines to grow by a few kilometres.


The world cup-winning cricketer, along with a few volunteers, provided tea and buns to people waiting at the gas stations in an effort to lessen their misery.

He posted a couple images of himself on Twitter along with the following: This evening, alongside the Community Meal Share crew, we provided tea and buns for the individuals waiting in the gas lines around Ward Place and Wijerama Mawatha. People standing in lines will face numerous health dangers as they grow longer every day.
