Sydney, Aug 27 (ANI): The Australian media has claimed that England's success in four of the past five Ashes series is a good thing for cricket, after long years when their national team under-performed.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, it is good for cricket that England now has a flagship team that can keep inspiring the community and stave off the monster that is football.
The report said that England's timidity and negativity provides greater entertainment in the form of close-fought matches and England have paid Australia the great compliment of fearing them.
To win in the return Ashes, Australia would have to rely on the favour of home conditions, the report added. (ANI)
