England great Geoffrey Boycott has a poser for English cricket fans: Are England that good to give Australia a hiding in the Ashes? His answer is an emphatic "No". He doesn't think so.

“Some say roll on the Ashes, we will give them a good hiding. But will we? Are we that good? I don’t think so. At our best we are better than Australia but favourites do not always win. That is why there are so many rich bookies.”

Boycott warns England not to be complacent looking at what the Australians have gone through. In fact, all the recent internal turmoil the team has gone through may make the Australians more focused, Boycott has written in his column in The Telegraph.
