Video - Warne Gets Behind Australia

Shane Warne joined the Australian team during a training session ahead of the third Ashes Test at Old Trafford and then backed them to deliver on the field in Manchester.

Michael Clarke's team are 2-0 down in the series following defeats at Trent Bridge, Lord's and must win the remaining three matches in the series in Manchester, Chester-le-Street and The Oval if they are to regain the Ashes.

"They've got the talent and the capabilities of going out and doing it, it's just a matter of them going out," he said.

"England are a very good side, they've played well, they're two-nil up so in this test match Australia have just got to go in with that mindset of we can win this test match and win the series. And if they think they can do that they're half a chance."

Warne spent time with Australian spinners Ashton Agar and Nathan Lyon during his time with the squad, but played down the significance of what he was passing on.

"It was more just field placements and things like that," he said. "When certain things happen what you can turn to, different things when you haven't got rhythm, just general cricket stuff more than anything exciting.

"There was no scoop or anything like that, just bowling in the nets with spinners. I suppose when I've done it for 25 years I'm sure I've got a little bit of knowledge I can help with."
