Broad aims to frustrate Australia

  Broad aims to frustrate Australia Stuart Broad is aiming to frustrate Australia's batsman in the Ashes by hitting the pitch hard and extracting extra bounce. Broad took part in England's first warm-up game on their tour of Australia, against a WACA XI, and admitted he bowled "like a drain".However, he feels that the match in Perth last weekend has helped him to adjust his length ahead of the first Ashes Test on November 23.England lost the last Ashes series in Australia 5-0, in 2013-14, and Broad believes the tourists need to restrict Australia's batsmen if they are to fare better this time around.

Australia paceman Pat Cummins is plotting to take a leaf out of Mitchell Johnson's book by tormenting the England batsmen during the Ashes series.

England were unable to cope with Johnson's hostile bowling during their previous tour in 2013-14, the left-armer taking 37 wickets in a 5-0 whitewash.

Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood will likely comprise the seam element of the Australia attack when the first Test starts at the Gabba on November 23 and the injury-plagued 24-year-old has eyes on emulating Johnson by giving the tourists a torrid time from the off.

"I would love to be that bowler, along with Starcy who can run in and bowl in short spells flat out, as fast as we can," Cummins told reporters. "That's a role I would like to play.

"Certainly coming through Bangladesh with the heat and everything I thought 'it cannot get much harder than this'.

"Hearing Nathan Lyon and a few of the guys saying they were the toughest days of cricket they have played gave me a lot of confidence."

There are doubts over whether Cummins' body will stand up to the challenge of playing in all five Tests and he said only time will tell whether he can be ever-present.

"I have no idea, I have never done it before. I have only played back-to-back Tests," the Sydneysider added.

"I feel as if I am in the best position I can be but we will have to wait and see. There are no guarantees."

Australia confused, England settled: Warne .
Shane Warne believes England are more settled than Australia based on the hosts' surprise selections for the first Ashes Test in Brisbane. "Australia look confused. They're picking wicketkeepers that aren't even keeping for their state. To me, I think England are in a better situation going into that first Test than what Australia are," Warne told reporters on Friday.
