'Merciless' Anderson admits England eyeing 5-0 Ashes whitewash

London, July 24 (ANI): England fast bowler James Anderson has said that he felt no sympathy for Australia after facing a 5-0 defeat in Australia six years ago and admitted that the team had set its sights on a 5-0 Ashes whitewash.

According to the Mirror, Anderson said that their team's job was to win games and they would do everything to win the series 5-0, adding that memories of 2006-07 had helped us a lot but it was not a great place for a team to be on the end of the embarrassing defeats.

Anderson was one of the four members of the current England team that suffered the ultimate humiliation at the hands of Ricky Ponting and Co Down Under six years ago, the report said. (ANI)
