England’s World Cup winning wicket-keeper has put his World Cup final shirt on eBay to help raise money for charity in aid of fighting coronavirus.

Jos Butler, who ran out Martin Guptill to seal a super-over victory over New Zealand to seal England their first ever World Cup win, is donating his shirt to help raise money for two specialist heart and lung centres in London, Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital.

And the shirt will be sighed by all the players from England’s victorious squad.

Buttler, 29, posted on Twitter: “I’m going to be auctioning my World Cup final shirt to raise funds for the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals charity.

“Last week they launched an emergency appeal to provide life-saving equipment to help those affected during the Covid-19 outbreak.”
