Stokes has pledged to donate "50% of the final figure".

Ben Stokes has said he will support England team-mate Keaton Jennings' charity bid by donating 50 per cent of the final figure raised.

Jennings is set to shave his head on January 4 in an effort to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The England and Lancashire opener set a target of £3000 on the 'bravetheshave' fundraising website and former Durham team-mate Stokes posted on Twitter that he would donate half of the final amount.

Jennings, writing on his fundraising page, explained that a family history of cancer motivated him to raise money for Macmillan.

"I come from a long family history of cancer and I would like to add some value and do my part in the fight against it," Jennings said.

"My Grandad suffered from cancer, so did my Gran and Great Uncle. Last year, my Dad was hit with a cancer diagnosis and currently my Aunt is facing 18 weeks of intense chemotherapy after surgery! I would love to join hands with you in fighting this disease and donate towards the battle against cancer."

Jennings and Stokes played in all three Tests as England sealed their first series win in Sri Lanka since 2001.
