Former Australian leg spinner Shane Warne has said that England has become too cocky about their chances of retaining The Ashes.

The legendary Aussie spinner bantered with Michael Vaughan on Twitter yesterday and has warned against English arrogance.

According to a newspaper, 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 he added: “What’s wrong with 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 and lost their last five games in all formats.

The First Test starts on November 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.”
