"I follow England - the game in general, in fact - from wherever I am in the world and thought this would be a fun way to make some money for Chance to Shine," Jagger said. "It's been an exciting series that has got people talking cricket so let's reflect that; with every inspiring performance comes a new fan and the younger those fans are, the better it is for cricket's future.
"No pressure on either Joe Root's guys or Virat Kohli's - though the bigger they go at the Oval the better!"
Laura Cordingley, Chance to Shine Chief Executive, said, “We are so delighted that Sir Mick will be supporting Chance to Shine during the final Test. I’m sure that the players from both sides will do us proud, while also helping to raise truly significant funding for Chance to Shine.”
Furthermore, the charity is encouraging cricket-loving fans to follow Jagger’s lead and give £20 for a century or five-wicket haul and £10 for a 50 or three wickets. The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has announced that it will match every donation that is made until September 30.
