The famous group of England supporters, the Barmy Army has again taken a dig at their rival opponents Australia and has literally insulted them for their infamous ball-tampering scandal a little more than a year ago at the Newlands in Cape Town, South Africa.
Referring to three Australian cricketers, Barmy Army shared pictures of players like Nathan Lyon, David Warner and Mitchell Starc with ca sarcastic caption which read, ‘The Australia squad look ready for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019!’.
The Barmy Army posted a doctored image on their Facebook and Twitter handle of three players in their official world CUP kits. One of the images can also see David Warner pointing at the wording in his jersey which has been photoshopped to ‘Cheats’.

It referred to the ball-tampering incident which wrecked the cricketing world in the month of March last year. Due to the incident, the trio involved in the incident David Warner, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft was suspended from playing international cricket for 12 months and 9 months respectively.
Meanwhile, in the group of photos posted by Barmy Army, Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Starc can also be seen holding rolls of sandpaper.
The current coach of Australia, Justin Langer gave a response to the social media trolls and stated that the team is up for any sort of challenge the Barmy Army throws to them once they take the field for the 2019 World Cup. David Warner who will be part of the Australia World Cup squad has been in sensational form.
The southpaw scored 692 runs in the ongoing IPL at a sensational average of 69.2 and a strike rate of 143.86. Along with Jonny Bairstow, he forged a solid partnership with the Englishman which got SRH off to the perfect starts. Meanwhile, Mitchell Starc will return to international action after a gap of 3 months.
