England men's white-ball tour of South Africa will be broadcast by TalkSport in the UK.

The radio station confirmed on Wednesday that it has won the ball-by-ball rights to the three ODIs and three T20Is, which are scheduled to take place in Cape Town and Paarl from November 27.

Coverage will be hosted on TalkSport2, which can be accessed online, via its app or on a DAB digital radio. 

The broadcaster has made significant ground on BBC's Test Match Special when it comes to overseas rights in recent years, taking on the live coverage of tours to Sri Lanka, West Indies and last winter's visit to South Africa.

Mark Butcher, Steve Harmison, Gareth Batty, Alex Tudor, Neil Manthorp, Jarrod Kimber and Andrew McKenna will return to the commentary team, while England seamer Kate Cross and South Africans Shaun Pollock, Dane Vilas and Alfonso Thomas are new recruits.

Head of talkSPORT Lee Clayton said: “Professional sport continues to have an important role to play in cheering up the nation and our award-winning cricket commentary team will bring cricket lovers all the drama from South Africa.”
