THE old enemy has been snapped preparing for the first Ashes Test with a hit out in South Perth.

The squad took in the sunshine while being put through their paces at Richardson Park yesterday, ahead of a two-day tour match against a WA XI that starts tomorrow at the WACA Ground.

Ashes action will begin at the Gabba on November 23.

England will also play two four-day matches in Adelaide and Townsville against a Cricket Australia XI between now and then.
