Mitchell Johnson: 'England are rattled'

Australia bowler Mitchell Johnson insists that England are "rattled" after suffering a heavy defeat in the first Ashes Test match in Brisbane.

Australia bowler Mitchell Johnson has insisted that his side have no intention of easing up against England in the second Ashes Test in Adelaide.

The hosts have come under criticism after skipper Michael Clarke was fined 20% of his match fee following a verbal exchange with James Anderson, and Johnson has dismissed suggestions that a truce should be called between the two teams.

The 32-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I think it's worked for us. I definitely think that they're rattled by it. They don't like it at all.

"Obviously their coach has come out and wanted a truce from what I've heard. That's not going to change from our end."

Australia defeated England by 381 runs in Brisbane in the opening game of the five-match series.
