Ashes Tour

Bairstow avoids disciplinary action

The subject of player behaviour has again been making headlines after it emerged Bairstow greeted Cameron Bancroft with what the Australian opener described as a headbutt in a Perth bar on October 29.

It follows on from all-rounder Ben Stokes remaining in the UK as he waits to discover if he will be charged after a late-night incident in Bristol in September.

'England scared on last Ashes tour'

The off-spinner says Mitchell Johnson's extreme pace in 2013-14 intimidated the tourists so much that they were already "broken" after the first Test.

Johnson took 37 wickets at 13.97 and did most of the damage as England were whitewashed 5-0.

"Seeing Mitchell Johnson scare all the Poms was unbelievable," Lyon said. "Leading into (the third Test at) Perth we knew they were broken; we knew Matt Prior wanted to fly home before the game started."
