Spin Wizard Shane Warne has challenged Duncan Fletcher's claim that England team had sorted him out and asked the rival camp coach to come up with a plan to stop him from leading the Australians to another Ashes victory.
"I'm sure Fletcher will come up with some you-beaut plan, a you-beaut comment," Warne said.
"I know Fletcher has said he thought England are playing me really well. If that is what he thinks, that's fine, but at the end of the day it is all about winning," Warne was quoted as saying by the 'Herald Sun'.
Warne had a stunning second innings harvest of 4-49 from 32 overs to pluck victory from nowhere in the second Test.
But after the loss Fletcher said he did not think the world's highest wicket taker had a mental hold on England and he was just another good spinner bowling well on wickets suiting him.
"I don't think he has (mental hold of England). It's like other good spinners who have bowled well against us on wickets that suit them," he said.
"I have never said we have played him comfortably in the sense we are confident against him, but I felt we played him better than we have than in recent years.
"He had to wait 54 overs for one wicket in the first innings. In the second innings we struggled to score off him but he still had to bowl 32 overs," he added.
