Australia can pip over-confident England

Nikita Bastian

Shane Warne, in the Daily Telegraph, says England's over-confidence is bordering on arrogance at the moment and Australia could well win the one-day series.

A few former England players and commentators on the game don’t think Australia have any bowlers and are a batsman or two short; combine that with England’s current form and record in England at present and it equals a walk-over when they resume battle on Friday. We know the public line from the England camp will be, “We won’t take Australia for granted”, but deep down there will be a feeling of superiority. I just sense they might under-estimate this Australia team of young players. I also believe this Australian team will give England something to think about before the Ashes next summer in England.
