Darren Lehmann has announced today that Conor McGregor will join the Australian coaching ranks for the remainder of the Ashes. McGregor will be as the assistant coach in shit-talking.


“Australian cricket stops at nothing to get our players the very best opportunity to succeed,” Lehmann said. “With the sledging that has been happening this Ashes series, we went out and got the very best”. “Conor McGregor will guide our boys in the finer arts of sledging.” It was between him and 90s Zimbabwean bowler Eddo Brandes”.

McGregor, who is expected to be with the side before the third test, made a name for himself fighting in the UFC. However, it was his boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather which earned the Irish fighter his biggest payday. “Conor shit-talked his way to a 100-million dollar pay packet, so telling Stuart Broad to fuck himself will be no problem”.

Australian captain, Steve Smith, a target of English sledging, is set to benefit the most. “I am excited to work with Conor in person,” Smith said. “I have already had a few conversations with him over the phone”. “When Jimmy Anderson gets in my grill, Conor said I need to call him a medium-pacer. After that, I should put him in a rear-naked choke hold”.
