Former England captain Nasser Hussain says he expects the sledging to continue in the Ashes series despite Jonathan Trott's departure with a stress-related illness.
Trott was described as "poor and weak" by Australia's David Warner after the batsman struggled in the opening test.
"I don't expect the other sledging to die down too much at all - this is an Ashes battle and it will continue to be an Ashes battle. I don't expect it to be played any differently," Hussain told Sky Sports.
The opening week of the Ashes series has been especially heated, with with Australia captain Michael Clarke warning England tailender James Anderson to "get ready for a broken f****** **arm" as he prepared to bat, a comment which has landed Clarke a hefty fine.
