Having retained The Ashes urn, Australia are brimming in confidence ahead of Boxing Day Test at Melbourne. Yet to make an impact in the series so far, David Warner has said asked England players to come out of their shell, and play hard and strong.

Warner also maintained that unlike Australia, England lack the ability to produce fast bowling talent back home. Speaking to the press, Warner said: Our depth is fantastic, we know what Australian cricket has to offer. I just think England aren t used to having or producing fast bowlers.

He also opened up about James Anderson s constant talk in the press.

He said: He talks about us being up all the time when we re in front but different story there he was firing shots at the captain apparently, then went very quiet as soon as he saw the wicket was quite flat at the WACA.

He further added, We don t dwell on what he says at all. He can fire those barbs at us. When you do bowl 145kph plus, you tend to get a couple of injuries. Everyone has had their fair share of injuries.
