Edgbaston crowd made Mitchell Johnson go crazy as he bowled one delivery from almost next to the umpire i.e., two yards behind the crease, which made it a 24-yard ball. He continued his love-hate relationship with the English crowd as they kept chanting “Mitchell, Mitchell”.

This was not the end as the left-arm fast bowler made another antic gesture to frustrate the crowd. After wasting enough time in shining the ball, he started his run-up to deliver. But as soon as he reached his last step, he aborted the delivery to frustrate the home team audiences.

England are leading the five-Test match Ashes series by 2-1 with two more matches to go. The Barmy Army have decided and will be ready again with their traditional songs and made-up chants for Johnson in the last two Test.
