A BBC Radio competition has been running all summer at the England and Wales Cricket Board Roadshows.

And there is just a month left before the competition closes.

Youngsters under the age of 17 can still create their own commentary tapes in a specially-designed BBC Radio booth at the roadshow which allows them to commentate on an over bowled by Darren Gough in the 1999 Cricket World Cup.

Tapes are then submitted to a BBC commentary panel, which, at the end of the season, will pick a winner.

Are you a budding Blofeld?

The winner will then go to Test matches between Australia and England in Melbourne and Sydney this winter - and commentate during one of the games on BBC Radio.

The winner's prize is for two adults and two children and is donated courtesy of ECB's official travel operators Titan Travel and Malaysian Airlines.

The ECB Cricket Roadshow, sponsored by Vodafone, is a 40ft foot articulated lorry which tours the country to promote cricket to youngsters.

The unit will visit 30 venues across the country this year.

So get yourself along....you could find yourself in Australia!
