In David Lloyd's autobiography, the story was Tony Grieg bowled Lillie a bouncer. Keith Fletcher in the slips said something along the lines of well Griegy give him another one. On the tour the England players were under strict orders not to talk to the media. The Australians were not and on the television there appeared to be the Geoff Thompson hour and the Dennis Lillee show. In the evening of the days play, Dennis Lillee was asked about bowling and said he was looking forward to bowling to Keith Fletcher after what he had said.

I got it from a chapter written by Thompson. So Bumble can blame Fletch for that infamous hit ‘amidships’ from Thommo?
