An Australian cricket columnist has added fuel to the fire that awaits Stuart Broad when he steps onto the pitch at The Gabba on November 21.
The England bowler angered the Aussie fans when he did not walk after edging the ball to slip in the first Test at Trent Bridge, which sparked a vociferous debate on etiquette.
Writing in Sydney's Daily Telegraph, Robert Craddock questioned: "Will Stuart Broad be strong enough to handle the tsunami of abuse that awaits him in Australia this summer? Only the bold or foolish incite Australia fans.
"It is generally not in the nature of English tourists to play Australia at their own antagonistic game. Sledging is generally considered our game, not theirs.
"Broad will need to have his mental flak jacket on from the moment he lands in Brisbane for the first Test."
