Barmy Army has extended its partnership with talkSPORT for England’s tour of South Africa.

The Barmy Army will provide listeners with the opportunity to get the full fan’s experience and to see exactly what it is like to follow the England cricket team on tour.

As part of the partnership, talkSPORT will be holding an on-air competition to fly two fans to the Three Lions’ tour of Sri Lanka in March.

There will also be a Barmy Army v talkSPORT charity cricket match held in Cape Town during the tour.

For more details of the partnership and how to be in with a chance to win the competition, tune into talkSPORT’s coverage of the South Africa tour.

Barmy Army managing director Chris Millard commented (via talkSPORT): “Our relationship with talkSPORT has blossomed since we worked together on the Sri Lanka tour.

“We are over the moon to be joined by talkSPORT cricket editor Jon Norman and his team once more on the South Africa tour.

“talkSPORT are the voice of the fans on-air and we are the fan’s voice off air, so it’s the perfect fit.”

We won’t too long to wait for the cricket to begin, as the First Test at Supersport Park in Centurion starts on Boxing Day.

The Three Lions’ preparations for the series against South Africa are in full swing, with Joe Root’s side producing an impressive performance in their first warm-up game.

England made 309-4, including unbeaten half-centuries from the skipper, Joe Denly and Dom Sibley, before bowling out the hosts for 289–with Chris Woakes (3-48) the pick of the bowlers.
