Shocking news for BBC TMS fans and it ain't going down well

It has been announced that talkSPORT have beaten BBC Test Match Special to the rights to air commentary of England during this coming winter. 

England's tours include Sri Lanka in Oct/Nov 2018 and West Indies in Feb/Mar 2019. So talkSPORT will now have live ball by ball coverage of all ODI'S T20 and Test Match fixtures. 

The first game to be broadcasted will be on 10th Oct 2018 Sri Lanka v England 1st ODI from Dambulla.

The BBC Radio Five Live coverage is extremely popular and has been covering all Test Matches home and away since in inception of radio, however ball by ball coverage really started in 1957. This news has already created quite a backlash from TMS fans (of which there are many all over the world) Here are a few tweets sent to talkSPORT when they broke the news a few hours ago.
