Cricket on social media: Jos Buttler World Cup giveaway and Rob Key endangering neighbours

The second week of lockdown has brought with it some noble charitable causes, as well as some questionable social media activity.

Jos Buttler donates his muddied World Cup-winning shirt to charity, meanwhile Rob Key is accidentally smashing golf balls into his neighbours garden in our latest look at how the cricketing world are entertaining themselves in isolation.

It might whiff a bit, but what a fantastic giveaway by JOS BUTTLER!

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. Link to auction in my bio.

FORE!! Thankfully, no neighbours were harmed in the filming of this ROB KEY instructional video…

Trying the pump drill ?????

DAVID WARNER shaves off those beautiful blonde locks all in the name of charity…

Been nominated to shave my head in support of those working on the frontline #Covid-19 here is a time lapse. I think my debut was the last time I recall I’ve done this. Like it or not??
