Doodles and shirts are up for grabs on eBay, from stars of Cricket United v Surrey T20 clash.
In the build up to the T20 fundraiser at the Kia Oval on 22 September, contested by the Surrey All Stars and a Cricket United XI, players from both teams joined together to do their bit for the Cricket United charitable appeal. As members of the current England Test side did earlier this summer, they drew their favourite cricketer to help raise funds for the three Cricket United charities, the Lord’s Taverners, Chance to Shine and PCA Benevolent Fund.
Doodles from the Cricket United XI included former West Indies captain Darren Sammy drawing the master blaster, Sir Vivian Richards, former England internationals Monty Panesar and Adam Hollioake drawing each other, speedster Tymal Mills drew his 2016 Sussex team mate Ross Taylor while Ben Duckett and Laurie Evans drew amusing sketches of each other.
From Surrey the Curran brothers had a go at drawing each other and Surrey legend Saqlain Mushtaq drew Pakistan star Shahid Afridi. There were also some unique player portraits drawn by a number of former international cricketing legends earlier this year. This set of drawings includes Jacques Kallis drawing Graeme Smith, Kumar Sangakarra’s effort of Lasith Malinga and Andrew Symonds by Adam Gilchrist.
Signed shirts from both the Cricket United and Surrey All Stars team are also up for grabs and you can bid on these and the unique player drawings here and help us change lives through cricket.
Auction for both the doodles and player shirts closes during the evening of Sunday 2 October.
