Mick Jagger has pledged to donate £20,000 to Chance to Shine each time a player from either side scores a century or claims a five-wicket haul in the final Test of the summer at The Oval.
He will also donate £10,000 for every half-century or three-wicket haul.
Jagger, the Rolling Stones singer, has a long association with cricket. The son of a PE teacher and cricket lover, he has been a regular face at matches all around the world, including appearances during World Cups and Ashes tours, to Ireland's maiden Test match against Pakistan at Malahide in May.
"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!"
