Michael Vaughan suggests Australia may complete men’s Ashes series whitewash

Former England captain Michael Vaughan has said that the Ashes tour will be a long one for the Joe Root-led England to start poorly.

Vaughan said, “I think England’s Test match team is such a team that if they play well and play well, they are fine. But if they get off to a bad start, it will be a long tour for them. “

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) issued a statement on Saturday saying that they have given conditional approval for the Ashes tour.

Vaughan, under whose captaincy England won the Ashes series in 2005, says that Australia can clean sweep in this series as well.

Vaughan told ABC Sports, “This series could also be 5-0. In the last four tours of Australia, England have lost twice 0-5 and once 0-4. They have lost 3-1 in 2010-11. Won the series.”

England’s squad does not include all-rounder Ben Stokes, who recently underwent finger surgery for the second time. Jofra Archer is also out with an elbow injury but Vaughan believes Root can perform with his batting.
