Lahore:Former Pakistan captains Moin Khan and Rashid Latif have been enlisted by a UK-based Islamic organisation for raising funds for last year's earthquake victims in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The two players recently accompanied the organisation's relief team to Muzaffarabad on a two-day visit and said they were disturbed to see the extent of damage caused by the calamity.

''It was a very moving experience for us as we were not aware of the large-scale destruction caused by the earthquake. It shook us to see the human misery,'' Moin told reporters.

''Clearly, a lot more needs to be done for the victims,'' Rashid said.

Rashid and vice-captain Younis Khan donated their cricket kits for raising funds for the victims of the temblor, which killed thousands of people.
