Tempers flair in the aftermath of Three Lions big loss at the Gabba.
Alastair Cook has ensured there will be plenty of talk between the first and second Test after accusing David Warner of fanning the flames of hatred.
In the countdown to the final wicket for Australia at the Gabba on day four, several run-ins on the field created a nasty tension between both sides.
That came to the surface when James Anderson skied a simple caught and bowled chance to Mitchell Johnson, with Peter Siddle clearly caught on camera departing English batsmen a mouthful.
This was also combined with captain Michael Clarke clearly being caught on the stump microphone, warning Anderson he “better get ready for a f—king broken arm.”
David Warner also stoked the flames with comments suggesting Jonathan Trott is “weak” after his duel failure at the Gabba.
England captain Alastair Cook said he did not respect Warner’s comments.
“I think the comment last night by David Warner was quite disrespectful to any professional cricketer,” Cook said, before adding that if there was any breach of the International Cricket Council’s code of conduct involved in Warner’s comments it was up to the ICC to pursue it.
“On the pitch it’s always going to be war. Anything said out in the middle is always going to be tough cricket, and that’s what people pay to see, so (keeping it) on the pitch is fine.”
