:Predicts another 5-0 Ashes whitewash

Mcgrath Predicts another 5-0 Ashes whitewash

Glenn McGrath has repeated a familiar rallying call by predicting Australia will inflict a 5-0 Ashes whitewash on England this summer. The former pace attack leader of Australia’s all-conquering Test team in the early 2000s has habitually forecast thrashings for England in the past, and has been embarrassed when Australia have not performed as he expected, notably in the 2005 series. He played a part in Australia triumphing 5-0 down under in 2006-07, and again envisaged the same result in England in 2009, only for Andrew Strauss to lead the home side to their triumph. McGrath had more recently refrained from trumpeting Australia as unbeatable by England, even before their 5-0 demolition job in 2013-14, but that is how he again positions Michael Clarke’s Test team. With England toiling to sorry effect at the World Cup, McGrath is looking to the summer and sees more misery on the cards when Alastair Cook, ousted as captain of the one-day side in December, returns to take the helm of the five-day team. He said, according to BBC Sport: “If the Australian team keeps playing as they are, they’re going to go to England full of confidence. I can’t see England beating them and I’m more than happy to predict 5-0.” McGrath, 45, expects the World Cup debacle to be followed by change in the England camp. He said: “I thought they struggled to take wickets or build up any pressure and they didn’t look potent at all. There are going to be changes, whether it’s coaching or the players. A lot of responsibility lies with the players.”
Awesome troll:hysterical:

i hope england prepare similar pitches like they did against india last summer,thats the only way their pacers will become lethal.preparing dry,flat pitches wont help england because they dont have a quality spinner like swann and their pacers will get nullified. though knowing ecb,they'll prepare similar tracks to the last ashes being sh1t scared of the aus pace attack

The fun thing in preparing dry wkts for Ashes is both bat like blindfolded even it turns slightly So basically it will be contest of bats the least worst .Though having Lyon and Smith (bat) should give Aussies the edge English will probably prepare a road for Cardiff and will go based that I think

Most overhyped series ever. Why do we need to care about this series ? Poms are never going to win anything else, so they get some satisfaction by playing Aussies and getting rammed by them. Weird people.

they could prepare last England ashes like strips and let Moeen Ali loose
Steven Smith played Ashwin very easily recently, so Moeen should not be a problem. If its a rainy summer, Clouderson will let many stumps go cartwheeling.

Would be the best thing to happen to England if they get thrashed. World cup might not ring in changes' date=' Ashes lost might[/quote'] they have made some changes in the test side tbf,the 4 pace attack of anderson,broad,finn,woakes looks decent.batting is a bit light
