“They play on slower wickets, not as a lot bounce, so over right here and in South Africa as nicely, it is one in every of our greatest strengths. As batsmen, we develop up on these wickets and as bowlers getting bounce has all the time been actually essential. I feel making an attempt to make it as completely different to their house circumstances as attainable and regular bouncy, quick wickets and quick balls are undoubtedly that.”

England journey to Australia with a barely unsettled batting line-up with the likes of Mark Stoneman, Gary Ballance, Dawid Malan, and James Vince beneath large stress to supply the products.

“Hopefully the wickets have a little bit of tempo and bounce in them, there’s nothing like getting your adrenaline up after which operating in making an attempt to bowl quick.

“To look at Johno (Johnson) do what he did, (he) stored the entire morale of the aspect and Australia up towards the Poms nearly single-handedly. It exhibits the significance a very fast bowler can have and hopefully one in every of us three or 4 guys can do the same job.”

The 2 groups play the primary Test in Brisbane from November 23 earlier than travelling to Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney for the remaining matches of the fixture.
