Sydney: Former Australian player Shane Warne has called on his team`s pace bowlers to bowl ` Bodyline with intent and pace` at England`s tailenders throughout the Ashes series.

According to News.com.au, Warne pointed out that lingering feuds between Shane Watson and Jimmy Anderson as well as Kevin Pietersen and Michael Clarke should guarantee a fiery affair.

The Australian cricket icon called on the Mitchell Johnson-led attack to strike fear into the hearts of England`s tailenders with concentrated spells of short-pitched bowling, the report said.

Warne said that it would be a very heated series, adding that there will be a lot of trash talking and sledging, adding that it will be played in the right spirit, but there will be a lot of ugly moments.
