David Warner isn't the only Australian player talking about hatred when it comes to the Ashes.Nathan Lyon, one of two other remaining members of the Australia squad which swept England 5-0 in the last Ashes series Down Under, backed his vice-captain Monday when asked if hatred would be a factor in the series.The Australians aren't keeping their game plan a secret heading into the series, which starts Thursday at the Gabba in Brisbane: A barrage of pace bowling from Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins, tipped to be in the same vein as Mitchell Johnson's intimidating bursts in the 2013-14 series, accompanied by a barrage of banter.He has 118 wickets at 25.75 in 31 tests, and has been compared with pace great Glenn McGrath because of his line, length and rhythm.This will be his first Ashes test on home soil and for inspiration he'll be drawing on his last series in England, where he was disappointed with 16 wickets in four tests before missing the last match after the hosts had clinched the Ashes.
