    Sehwag leads ICC's AIDS awareness drive

    Indian opener Virender Sehwag, Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara and

    South Africa skipper Graeme Smith will raise awareness about HIV as part of

    an ICC initiative which coincides with the World Twenty20 Championship,

    starting on Friday.

    The campaign will feature messages and information to raise awareness

    about HIV among young people.

    "I hope that people, and young people in particular, are educated about HIV

    and take the precautions they need," Sehwag said.

    "Everyone deserves the chance to have the information they need to make

    the right choices and protect themselves, and their loved ones from HIV," he


    Around 10 million people living with HIV are from major cricketing countries.

    This accounts for more than a quarter of all the people across the world who

    are HIV-positive.

    The trio will be joined by Australian pacer Nathan Bracken and England's

    women's team member Isa Guha in the initiative.

    Five new public service announcements (PSAs) featuring some of the players

    will be shown during the event on big screens at grounds, on the official

    event website as well as by broadcasters across the globe.
