As soon as you step on that line it´s war,” 

Talking to Australian Broadcasting Corporation Warner said “The history, the pride that is at stake. As soon as you step on that line it´s war.” Warner answered a question when asked what Ashes meant to him.

Playing against England is “war”, said Warner and he plans to work up “hatred” for the tourists for extra motivation during the upcoming Ashes series.

Warner made that kind of comments in past, during the first Test in Brisbane in 2013, he famously said England had “scared eyes” when facing Australia´s pace attack and he is firing similar salvoes ahead of their arrival later this month.

“You try and get into a battle as quick as you can. I try and look in the opposition´s eye and work out how can I dislike this player, how can I get on top of him.

“You´ve got to find that spark in yourself to really take it to the opposition. You have to delve and dig deep into yourself to get some sort of hatred about them,” he said further.

Former Australian captain Steve Waugh made a comment about Ben Stokes last week, saying England can´t win without Stokes, whose position is in question after a brawl outside the night club.

Fast bowler Mitchell Starc also take a dig towards Stokes and said if he does make the trip he´ll be targeted, urging Australian fans “get stuck into” him.

Starc has also warned England to expect a repeat of the carnage of four years ago when Australia, fired by the fearsome pace of Mitchell Johnson, won 5-0.

Warner also praises the aggression of the Australian bowling lineup ahead of Ashes “I can tell you now I´m very scared when it comes to the nets. So hopefully they (England) are scared because it is challenging facing our guys.”
