"Harry and I can’t wait to meet guests, enjoy a fantastic discussion about the upcoming Test match and support a brilliant charity in the process.

"It’s going to be a great night.”

Kerri Frost, regional engagement manager at the Lord’s Taverners, said: “We are very grateful to Stuart and Harry for hosting this event at their pub, the Tap & Run.

"It’s such a wonderful space for us to create the perfect Eve of Test dinner, it’s going to be a great evening, and with Toby Tarrant compering, lots of fun too.”

Money raised during the event will continue to support the work of the Lord’s Taverners in the East Midlands, providing free community cricket programmes for young people with a disability and from disadvantaged communities.
