Barmy Army invents NINE songs to spot cricket cheats Steve Smith and David Warner during the World Cup and The Ashes
- The English bar army has prepared new songs for the return of Warner and Smith
- Sir Ian Botham said that Warner cannot handle the English bustle and songs
- The Barmy Army has previously made songs that mock at Warner and Smith
The English fanatic Barmy Army group has nine songs to offend Australian cricket players Steve Smith and David Warner during their performance in the World Cup and The Ashes.
The legendary English all-rounder Sir Ian Botham mentioned the songs while speaking at the Australian High Commission in London, and predicted that Warner would find it difficult to deal with the English crowd.
Warner and Smith are expected to face a hostile reception from English fans as they have returned from their 12-month ban on their role in the ball-tampering scandal that broke out during the Australian tour of South Africa in March 2018.
Notorious English fan group the Barmy Army has written nine songs to insult Australian cricket players Steve Smith and David Warner (pictured with wife Candice Warner) during their performance in the World Cup and the Ashes

& # 39; The Barmy Army has already made & # 39; eight or nine songs – I think David Warner might be a good part of that, & # 39; said Sir Ian.
Sir Ian does not think Warner will handle the numbers after he left the field due to comments from the brother of cricketer Phillip Hughes, Jason, about the ball manipulation incident during a match last October.
& # 39; I'm not sure he can handle it, that'll be interesting, he didn't do well in good quality cricket, and that was of all things Philip Hughes & # 39; brother Jason.
& # 39; He just walked away and it wasn't particularly aggressive. He is going to tackle it. & # 39;

Warner, Smith, and Cameron Bancroft were the only players who were punished for the incident, but Botham claimed there was no way the entire Australian bowling attack would have noticed that the ball had been manipulated.
& # 39; As a bowler you know everything about the ball and in what form, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; There is no chance in the world that the bowlers in that team did not know that sandpaper was rubbed on that ball. & # 39;
Botham is confident that England will regain The Ashes urn and even channel the spirit of Glenn McGrath by predicting a whitewash for Joe Root & # 39; s side.
& # 39; I'd say five zero, for Glenn McGrath I'd even say six zero, even though there are only five games & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; I think England will win because they have a home advantage and I think the Australian boys will handle it a bit. & # 39;

The song mentions David Warner's wife, Candice, and her previous affair with Canterbury Bulldogs and Sydney Roosters player Sonny Bill Williams.
