Ftr, like pasag, I just think England will underperform rather than Australia need to lift their game much.
England also won 5 from 6 and Bangladesh & Pakistan < West Indies & Pakistan. Plus, it's on our turf.
Really the only rubber we've lost in the past 15 years was against South Africa, and that required a couple of superhuman efforts to do so. Don't see us losing, and even if the season starts off rocky, then I imagine the selectors will be far harsher than usual.....
