It has warned the Australians to keep the modern day Ian Botham (B), Andrew Flintoff, in his shell if they have to triumph and said that Flintoff"s ageing body would crack under pressure.

C has been referred as Sydney's King's Cross, England captain Andrew Strauss first met his wife Ruth in a nightclub in that area. The plan states that it might be used during an on-field niggle against the player.

The plan has “F for a flying start", where it asks the Australians to get a flying start, and said that they should stop England from getting a flying start if they have to in the series.

Plan states “L for Lord''s", where Australia has always tasted success and has luxurious memories. The venue for the second test in the series is a ground where Australia has not lost since 1934.

“T for tail-enders" highlights the manner in which in the recent past players likes Mitchell Johnson have regularly wagged in order to provide stability to the team. It is a point that the English squad lacks.

Y has been gives as Yobbos, referring to 7000 yellow T-shirt Australian brigade that is expected arrive in England for the Ashes. Seen as a support to the team hopes are high that they would give a tough time to the Barmy Army.

Z is for the ranking, which they hope that they would not give to Australia''s spin bowling battery at the end of the tour.
