Sydney: Former Australian Test star Michael Hussey has shown reluctance from agreeing to former teammate Glenn McGrath in predicting Aussies will produce an Ashes sweep against England, despite their strangehold in Perth.

Hussey suggested that even if Australia regained the Ashes, England will come back hard on the final day and it was naive to write off a champion team which has proven themselves earlier as well, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

McGrath`s ultra-confident 5-0 predictions became true as Michael Clarke`s men went in for a dominant position with convincing wins against England in the first two Tests at Perth.
