Warne calls English players

Former Australian leg spinner Shane Warne has said that the English team has become "too cocky" about their chances of reclaiming The Ashes. The Aussie spin wizard bantered with former England captain Michael Vaughan, on Twitter on Monday and has warned against English arrogance.

According to The Sun, Warne told Vaughan: "Yeah, yeah, whatever bud. Your Poms are cocky at present. Could end in tears for you all, just chill." Another post said: "Just wait until it starts. What's with the English lip? You that sure of winning? I'm not sure."

Then Warne, who is leading wicket taker in the Ashes with 195 wickets, added: "What's wrong, it's going to be a great, close and thrilling series. Good luck to both teams. Lots to happen yet."

Australia have not won since July at Lords and lost their last five games across all formats. The First Test starts on Nov 25 in Brisbane, where England have not won since 1986.

Vaughan replied: "All on the first game. If the Aussies go ahead, we will struggle."
