Stuart Broad says Australian cricket coach Darren Lehmann is using mind games coach outlet in branson mo ahead of Ashes series
Stuart Broad has lit the fuse for another explosive Ashes series, claiming Australia coach Darren Lehmann is using mind games to try to unsettle England because he knows his side aren't better than their old enemy.
Lehmann was fined 20 per cent of his match fee for comments made about Broad in a radio interview during the fifth Test at The Oval between the sides last August.

Shane Warne has also coach online outlet store been a stern critic, claiming Alastair Cook is a negative captain and that his players were arrogant.

"It means they are in your bubble and they are not enjoying playing against you. Which is what professional sport is all about.
"Lehmann will try mind games. I see he had a go at Trotty's technique.
"If we believed everything that came out: dour captained poorly, we don't bowl our overs quick enough, lack adaptability.
"But we won the series 3 0. So if we did everything they say we can't, then coach store outlet surely we'd win the two series 10 0."
Broad said he had no issues with Warne and the leg spinning great was just trying to help the Australian side.
"It's a PR game. I see Warne as working for Australia. We are not listening to what he says," he said.

"We're very happy with where we are as a team. We've got some skilful players, guys who are hungry to perform in Australia we don't need to comment on Australia."
Broad incurred the wrath of Lehmann when he refused to walk during the first Test at Trent Bridge after edging an Ashton Agar delivery off the fingers of Brad Haddin's gloves and into the hands of Michael Clarke at first slip.
Umpire Aleem Dar gave him not out and England went on to win the match by 14 runs to lay coach outlet factory online store the foundations for a 3 0 series win.

"Ryan Harris came over first of all and apologised and said the Aussie players had given him a hard time because they felt his comments were unacceptable," he said.
