England will travel to Australia in November to play the return Ashes, approximately three months after they won the 2013 series 3-0 at home.<br /> <br /> "I think you could pick up from the cameras that there was a lot of talk on the field. There's always a bit of niggle in Test cricket, you expect there to be a battle, but there's something about England and Australia that sparks something a bit more," Broad was quoted as saying by the <em>Daily Telegraph</em>.<br /> <br /> "The relationship between the teams isn't exactly great. I think there'll be some leftovers.’’<br /> <br /> Broad revealed that the 2013 Ashes seem too 'weird’ as according to the tradition, the post-series drink between the two teams never happened.<br /> <br /> "Normally when you get together, the bowlers go off for a chat with their opposite numbers and the batsmen do the same,’’ he added.<br /> <br /> "But with these series so close together, it was weird because there was none of that. It was a case of 'I'm not giving anything of myself to you here, because I'm going to see you in eight weeks.’’<br /> <br /> Broad said he is looking forward to England’s chance of winning the Ashes for the fourth consecutive time.<br /> <br /> "I enjoy the niggle," Broad said. "It's tactical, you target certain players and you lay off others. The Aussies used to call it mental disintegration, but it's a test of the man."<br /> <br /> "In rugby, it's the big hit you have to prepare yourself for. In cricket, it's the mental barrage. It's good fun," he concluded.
