Warne urges Oz quicks to target England's tail with 'bodyline bowling'

Sydney, Nov 20 (ANI): Former Australian player Shane Warne has called on his team's pace bowlers to bowl 'Bodyline with intent and pace' at England's tailenders throughout the Ashes series.

According to News.com.au, Warne pointed out that lingering feuds between Shane Watson and Jimmy Anderson as well as Kevin Pietersen and Michael Clarke should guarantee a fiery affair.

The Australian cricket icon called on the Mitchell Johnson-led attack to strike fear into the hearts of England's tailenders with concentrated spells of short-pitched bowling, the report said.

Warne said that it would be a very heated series, adding that there will be a lot of trash talking and sledging, adding that it will be played in the right spirit, but there will be a lot of ugly moments. (ANI)
