Top players have taken time out from their Ashes quest to sketch portraits of each other in aid of a new charitable appeal.

The portraits were drawn at the request of three cricket charities - The Lord's Taverners, Chance to Shine and the PCA Benevolent Fund - and will be auctioned to raise money for the Cricket United appeal.

It's a bit of fun and the lads enjoyed doing something completely different for charity. We hope the portraits will raise significant funds for three fantastic charities, The Lord's Taverners, Chance to Shine and the PCA Benevolent Fund, and help improve lives through cricket."

– Alastair Cook, England captain

The eBay auction ends at 1pm on 4th August.
