Steve Waugh warns England to beware of Oz fast-bowling attack
Sydney: Australian cricket legend Steve Waugh has warned England not to take the Australians lightly, adding that England are not strong as they used to be and their top order is ripe to be exposed by Australia`s young fast-bowling attack.
Stating that England has been blowing hot and cold for the last 12 months, Waugh said that he has no doubt that Australia`s young fast-bowling unit can take 20 wickets, adding that England relies too much on a few stars.
According to the former all-rounder, Australia`s current crop of pace bowlers holds the key to winning the Ashes series, adding that England batting is fragile at times and they rely a lot on James Anderson and Graeme Swann in the bowling area, which puts a lot of pressure on them.
Stating that England captain Alastair Cook may also be pressurized as it his first Ashes series as a captain, Waugh, however, admitted that along with England, Australia has also a lot of chinks in its armour. Waugh further said that the Ashes is always fiercely contested, adding that he expected this to be a very close series.
