Comments from Cricketing Experts

Shane Warne: Shane Warne believes that the Australia's death as cricketing superpower was greatly exaggerated. He predicted that Australia will win the 2010 Ashes series.

Waqar Younis: The former Pakistani fast bowler and current coach of Pakistan believes that Australia has a slight edge over England.

Michael Vaughan: Vaughan, former England captain, believes Ricky Ponting will lose captaincy if Australia loses the Ashes series.

Peter Roebuck: Roebuck believes that the England team is beatable, but Australia need to be at their best to win the Ashes 2010 series.

In June 2010, a study led by an Indian origin meteorologist in Australia has predicted that the recent El Nino event in Australia can help the Ponting-led team to win back the Ashes this summer.
