England’s ‘Barmy Army’ of cricket supporters started to arrive in Pakistan yesterday, hoping their bawdy chants can help the team keep up its Ashes-winning form. The ‘Barmy Army’ are famous for their raucous cheers and humorous songs and travel across the globe to cheer England, who are still on a high from last month’s 2-1 Ashes series win against Australia, their first in 18 years. Pakistan cricket officials are hoping a larger than usual number of English fans will come for the series, drawn by mounting interest in the game after the Ashes.
