Dennis Lillee has tipped Australia to regain the Ashes because they have a stronger bowling attack. Lillee, who took 167 wickets in 29 Tests against England, believes the hosts' current line-up is superior.
"In the end it's got to be [about] your attack - you've got to bowl sides out twice," Lillee told Sky Sports Radio. "If I look at both attacks I think Australia - even without Warne and McGrath - have a better attack than England.
"[Their] spinning attack - they may use spin twins - may be better than ours because Nathan Hauritz is still evolving, but overall our attack is better and that's where games are won."
England lifted the Ashes at home in 2005 and 2009 but were beaten 5-0 in Australia in 2006-07, with McGrath, Warne and Langer retiring at the end of the series. "It's going to be much closer than the other ones [in Australia]," Lillee said. "But we should probably win it 2-1 or 3-2."
