Test Match Special has ball by ball commentary of every Test and one-day international as England take on first Pakistan - and then Australia in the eagerly-awaited Ashes series.

The team, led as always by Jonathan Agnew, includes Christopher Martin-Jenkins and Henry Blofeld.

At lunch on Saturday during the Test matches, guests will relive their memories in A View from the Boundary - and on other days, listeners will get their chance to put a question to the team.

At the end of each day's play there is a chance to look back on the day's events in Agnew's Close of Play, on Five Live 909&693 MW.

The show will also be webcast live on BBC Sport Online.

Dramatic

England are flying high after their back to back wins over Pakistan and Sri Lanka this winter.

But the dramatic manner in which the side had to grind out a win in the last session in Karachi will ensure Waqar Younis and his men will certainly be looking to reverse their fortunes.

In addition to ball-by-ball coverage of all the Tests, TMS will also be delivering live commentary of the NatWest triangular series between England, Pakistan and Australia which starts on 7 June.
