Shane Warne believes that England have their best chance for over 20 years to win the Ashes in Australia this winter. England last Ashes win in Australia was way back in 1987 but Warne states that England at the moment have an edge of Australia.

“It’s been a long time since they had the edge on us in all forms of the game,” said Warne.

“England played outstanding cricket in the recent one-day series.”

Warne also praised England’s off-spinner Swann stating that he was the man who could guide England to an Ashes win this winter..

“He is the most improved cricketer,” stated Warne.

“He mixes his pace, he’s not afraid to be hit, he’s learning all the time in difficult conditions.

“As a spinner, he needs to know how to take wickets at the crucial times. There are times to defend and attack. But, if in doubt, attack and that’s what I like about him.

“His special ability is his quicker delivery – he spins it. That’s rare for a spin bowler. Generally, the slower you bowl, the more you spin it.

“But Swann can turn it when he bowls faster.”
