CRICKET: Australia's side ready to regain Ashes, says captain
2013-08-26 13:20:25 | (0 Comments)
Australia captain Michael Clarke believes his side is ready to mount a strong challenge to regain the Ashes despite their 3-0 series defeat.
Clarke's team failed to win a Test in an Ashes series for the first time since their 3-0 loss in England in 1977 and have not won in nine Tests.
However, batsman Clarke believes his much-maligned side is improving.
Clarke says there were lots of positives from the Ashes against England, especially from the last three Tests.
Those three Tests saw them only denied victory by rain in Manchester, while they enjoyed dominant spells in defeat at Durham and then scored 492 runs in their first innings at The Oval.
That has given Clarke belief that his players are improving quickly and he sees no reason why Australia cannot end England's run of three successive Ashes series victories in the return on home soil later this year.
The first Test will begin in Brisbane on November 21.
