Bailey denies making 'barbs' at Anderson during first Ashes Test

Melbourne, Nov 25 (ANI): Australian batsman George Bailey has said that he has no idea what riled England's James Anderson in the dying overs of first Ashes Test.

According to The Age, Anderson appeared to take offence at something Bailey said and umpires intervened as Australia closed in on a breakthrough 381-run win.

Bailey, the gentlemanly Australian limited-overs skipper, said he had not upped the lip for his first appearance in the baggy green, according to the report.

Sledging is again in the spotlight following the incident and the citing of Australian captain Michael Clarke for allegedly telling Anderson he was about to get a 'broken fing arm', the report said.

Bailey also said that the undoubted fireworks between the fierce rivals had been part and parcel of a desperate battle, the report mentioned.(ANI)
