It's not just India who are rejoicing Australia's drubbing in the first two Tests but also England as weeks before the Ashes series, former skipper Michael Vaughan declared that the British team is better than Australia in every department.

After Australia's shambolic innings defeat inside four days in the Hyderabad Test, Vaughan wrote on twitter: “Breaking news. Anyone that has bought a fifth-day ticket for this summer's Ashes will receive (a) full refund due to Aussie team that won't make it.”

Vaughan then added more salt to the injury by mocki-ng the current Australian batting line-up, “What do you call a great Australian cricketer??? Retired.”

Later Vaughan spoke to the British media and said going by Australia's current form, they do not look like posing any challenge to England when the two teams renew Ashes rivalry from July.

“This isn’t arrogant in any way but I think England are better than them in all areas. I think they've got a better top six, a better bowling unit, better spinners,” Vaughan told Sun. “I think England have got good coaching, good managers, a good structure - at the minute, Australia have got a bit of turmoil behind the scenes.”
