James Anderson has stated publicly England’s ambition to win the Ashes 5-0 after going 2-0 up against Australia in the ongoing Test series. Australia have twice routed their arch-rivals by such a margin but England have never won an Ashes 5-0.
England have the chance to win their third straight Ashes series at Anderson’s Old Trafford home ground where the third Test starts on August 1. “I don’t feel any sympathy (for Australia),” Anderson said. “We want to win the series 5-0, so we will be doing everything we can in each game. ”
He also revealed that the team is optimistic about Kevin Pietersen’s fitness .
‘Solve own problems’
LONDON: Former Australia batsm-an Damien Martyn has told the current team to pick themselves up in a bid to regain the Ashes. “There are no miracles out there to pick ourselves up,” said Martyn, who retired with an average of more than 46 in 67 Tests.
