Gotta love the Aussies sense of humour as well though.
Brits and Aussies are probably the only people who see humour in ANY given situation and who both also like ripping the piss out others and themselves
at the same time, other nationalities just don't quite get it.
The Barmy Army and English fans in general like to have a bit of a pop at the Aussie players - Mitchell Johnson is the current target of choice - and
they all tend to take it in good humour.
Warner has done exactly the same in the past.
And to be fair the Aussies can get very vociferous when The Ashes are held down under.
I imagine players of most other countries would have a bit of a whinge and moan about it.
Another thing I noticed was Aussie fans applauding Broad on his performance - cricket is a bit unique in that respect.
Now I'm entirely sure if that was genuine recognition of a great display or a sarcastic dig at the Aussie batsmen's failings.
But it was all the more surprising given the Aussies attitude towards Broad in the past.
