The Barmy Army have had an excellent series.

Some of their banter has been hilarious and they made the news when they gave a signed shirt to a nearby cop in Melbourne.

Last night they hosted a charity event in Darling Harbour with Geoff Boycott and Triple M Cricket’s Graeme Swann, and raised over $12,000 for the Professional Cricketer’s Association fund in England.

They also took the opportunity to bust out a version of the Oasis classic Champagne Supernova dedicated to Swanny, with lyrics about his Test debut at Chennai in 2008.

Swann got belted for four off his first ball but then followed it up with the wickets of Gautam Gambhir and Rahul Dravid.

FULL LYRICS:

How many special people came

So many flights we had to change

Where were you when we were in Chennai?

 

Got hit for four with his first ball

Then took Gambhir and the Wall

Where were you when we were in Chennai?

 

Some day you will find him

Taking loads of wickets

In a Swanny super over in Chennai

 

Some day you will find him

Taking loads of wickets

In a Swanny super over, a Swanny super over

 

Because people believe

That we should never have come here at all

But you and I, will never die

And Graeme Swann is just one reason why, why, why, why…
