Bailey, standing at short-leg, had continued to tease the England side with that chant, in particular <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/james-anderson/">James Anderson.</a> <p></p> <p></p>'Ooooohhhh, Jimmy Jimmy <p></p>Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Anderson ' <p></p> <p></p> I find the Barmy Army songs quite catchy, and they were belting out the Jimmy Anderson song, Bailey told cricket.com.au. It just got caught in my head, and I was singing it as he was about to face up. <p></p> <p></p>Anderson, up against a fired-up <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/mitchell-johnson/">Mitchell Johnson</a>, didn't seem to enjoy it the banter. <p></p> <p></p>"He asked whether I thought the Barmy Army would ever write a song about me. I replied I didn't think they would, that I really liked the songs they already had in their repertoire, what they brought to the game. I also realised I had a steel-reinforced helmet on, and 40,000 people in the stands, most of whom were going to back me up. So I ve never felt more confident in a fight, said Bailey. <p></p> <p></p>Bailey even found backing from his captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/michael-clarke/">Michael Clarke</a>, who was willing to stand up for him. <p></p> <p></p>Johnson had rattled the English batsmen that summer in a way few have. He took 9 wickets in that match with his short but furious spells. England lost the opening game by 381 runs.
