We have arranged to play a Barmy Army CC v Amla Army T20 match at Newlands the day after the test match finishes...on the test match strip! This should be a great experience for everyone including those who play in the game and fellow members and supporters who come down and support.

Any First Class members interested in playing in the game please post below and give a brief intro into your cricketing background and experience and let us know what your most looking forward to in South Africa!

As always with these games...the focus is fun and enjoyment so you don't have to be Joe Root to get a game but clearly if we are over-subscribed with requests we will have to select the team randomly.

What an experience this would be, I'd love to be considered. Turn 50 tomorrow, played at different levels throughout my life as a pudding throwing bowler. Still involved now at local level playing in divisions 3, 5 and 6. Spent the last few years bringing on junior players.

As for Cape Town, it's a meeting with an ex army colleague from 25 years ago, who now lives there which I'm looking forward to along with Table Mountain and Shark Diving.

I'd like to play if at all possible. I've been a University, League and (more recently) friendly level cricketer. In the more distant past I've played at The Rose (now Ageas) Bowl, The County Ground at Southampton and Derby and at Darley Dale. Now I'm (almost) 62 it's slow bowling and grinding batting. But if possible, count me in!

I'd love to play. Left arm bowler (was fast, but now 50) and Left hand bat. Still play regularly for Caldy CC on the Wirral in the Liverpool & District League. Been a BA member for 10 years (now lifetime) but this is my 1st trip away. Looking forward to visiting the winelands & Table Mountain and singing along with the crowd at Newlands.

Played since I was 10 years of age, only at village standard though. I’m 26 now. I have a disability where I only have the use of my right arm so I’m predominantly a bowler. I played for Essex’s Ability team this year too.

I'd love to get involved and take part, I've never been to South Africa so this would be the highlight of the trip. I currently play club cricket in the Worcester Cricket League.

Keen to play on the iconic ground! Played a bit of cricket way back (not superstar level), generally dust off the whites once every year or two...
