Can England win the Ashes in Australia?

Do England have any chance, even the slimmest possibility, no matter how remote, of winning the Ashes in Australia?

Australia have to be odds on favorites to win it, and I do find it hard to see England winning in Australia...

Having said that they will be playing a few warm up games in Australia first and should be much better prepared this time. This is the best England side I have see in 20 years. I won't write them off completely especially if they are at full strength.

Amidst the hoopla of Twenty20 cricket being the destructor of the longest version of the game, the recently-concluded T20 World Cup surprisingly provided a much needed precursor to a great Ashes series that will be played in Australia later this year.

England has a team which can tame the Kangaroos in their own den. When they embark Down Under for a five-Test Ashes series, they need that gutsy attitude which helped them win the T20 World Cup. It’s this attitude that helped them settle score with Australia in 2005 and 2009 home Ashes.

But, winning Ashes in England is completely different from winning it Down Under. The 0-5 drubbing that the English received at the hands of their arch-rival in 2006 in Australia immediately after winning the 2005 rubber is still vivid in the memory of many cricket lovers. One example will be sufficient to make England’s mammoth task at hand clear. Last time they came back triumphant from the Australian soil was way back in 1986-87, a jinx of 24 years.
