England players sketch each other to raise funds for cricket charity

London, July 26 (ANI): England cricketers have reportedly drawn sketches of each other in a bid to raise funds for Cricket United, a joint fund-raising appeal by three of the game's charities- the Lord's Taverners, Chance to Shine and the PCA Benevolent Fund.

According to the Independent, the drawings by both the men's and women's teams are being auctioned on eBay between now and 4 August.

The report further said that England's Ashes star Joe Root has also dabbled with the paint brush and put his A level art to good use with decent resemblances of Ian Bell and Monty Panesar, while bowlers and friends Graeme Swann and James Anderson have opted for a mutual comic effect in their sketches of each other.

According to England men's team skipper Alastair Cook, the players have had fun and have enjoyed doing the sketches for charity.

Cook also urged cricket fans to support the Cricket United appeal. (ANI)
