Barmy Army set to 'unsettle' Johnson again with 'shite' chants during winter Ashes

Sydney, Nov 19 : The famous English cricket fan-group, the Barmy Army, is reportedly set to unsettle Australian paceman Mitchell Johnson in the same way like they did with their songs in the 2010-11 Ashes series.

Johnson's inclusion in the Australian Test team for the first time since March is set to lead to the resurrection of a Barmy Army favourite: 'He bowls to the left, he bowls to the right, that Mitchell Johnson, his bowling is shite.'

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Barmy Army co-founder Paul Burnham said that Johnson and maybe Ryan Harris would be targeted by them to 'put the duo off their game a little bit' as they are Australia's best bowlers.

Burnham further said that although he believes that Johnson was affected by their chants on the last tour, he was also affected by the Australian fans who became critical of him, adding that Johnson has a lot to prove to his country.

With Johnson not part of the Australian squad for the recent series in England, the Barmy Army's attention turned to David Warner following his nightclub altercation with English rookie Joe Root, the report added.
