England are currently in the middle of their warm-up schedule ahead of the first test on November 23, but took some time out yesterday for a little team-bonding.
The squad went paintballing in Townsville to try and get their eye in as they prepare to defend the Ashes, with several picking up war wounds as their team-mates hit their marks.
Stuart Broad in particular looked like he was targeted for some serious punishment, while Dawid Malan took a paintball square in the face.
The players had better get used to coping under fire, with a hostile reception expected from the home crowd when England take to the field at the Gabba.
