Australian quick bowler Mitchell Johnson has admitted to being 'nervous' on the 2009 Ashes tour to England, but not says his 'demons' has vanished and can't wait to get stuck in during the upcoming ashes series down under.
Beset by personal problems, Johnson looked a shadow of the bowler that had ripped through South Africa in the series before the 2009 Ashes, and he admitted recently...."Over there I definitely built it up... it was a huge deal for me, like any young guy coming through."
"I think I've learnt that lesson now, I've experienced that and now I've adjusted to the pressures of I guess being a leader of the attack as well."
"I'm looking forward to this series, it's something I'm very excited about."
Johnson also knows that this series will be fiesty.....
"Definitely, it will be pushed to the boiling point, It's an Ashes series and there's a lot of guys in that side that don't mind speaking. But I guess there's a few in our side as well."
"It's definitely going to be a fiery series. It's just (about) keeping your emotions in check and knowing how far you can go."
"We want to do the best we can with our skills... we want to beat them with our skills and win the series."
